Debra Leigh Scott is a writer, playwright, screenwriter and educator. She founded Hidden River 20 years ago with the belief that writers needed to offer each other support and
encouragement in as many ways as possible. She is the author of a collection of short stories, OTHER LIKELY STORIES, and her other projects include PIETY STREET, the first novel of a trilogy, a few other novels in various stages of completion, a few plays, and a documentary film project, ‘Junct: The Trashing of Higher Ed. in America and a companion book of the same name, focusing on adjunct faculty labor abuse and the corporate takeover of higher education.
Daniel Carelli is an all-around creative character and computer guy who is one of our go-to men for the various issues of general IT maintenance. Dan has worked in theatre – primarily doing tech: theatre lighting and sound design. He also works in photography, glass art, and whatever kind of art-making interests him at any particular moment. He was a very scary yeti at Terror Behind the Walls at the Eastern State Penitentiary, where he often battled with the visitors to get their tiny flashlights back. One of the coolest guys in the world.
Leon is our other go-to tech miracle worker and all around amazing guy. “Multi-talented” barely covers it. Actor, singer, IT-magician….and a STILT-walker! Maybe it’s because he comes closer to touching the stars up there on those stilts that he is always such an uplifting, power-of-positive thought person? One of the kindest, most loving people on the planet!
