We are proud to announce that Angel Leigh McCoy is the HWA’s new Webmaster. Angel has been part of the HWA Web team for some time and steps into the rather large shoes of the late Mark Worthen.
Angel has two loves: writing and web design. During the day, she works as a writer/game designer at ArenaNet, part of a vast team effort to make the coolest online world ever: Guild Wars 2. In the evening, in addition to her volunteer webmastering for various sites, she is also head editor at WilyWriters.com and recently edited Night-Mantled: the Best of Wily Writers, volume 1.
More than 18 years ago, she started her career writing for White Wolf. Since then, she has worked for Wizards of the Coast, FASA, Microsoft Game Studios, and other game companies. At Xbox.com, she was the correspondent Wireless Angel.
Her fiction has appeared in numerous media, and in 2011, she has stories in the anthologies: Beast Within 2, Fear of the Dark, Growing Dread: Biopunk Visions, and Tales for Canterbury, among others. She’s also had stories appearing in Strange Aeons and Necrotic Tissue magazines. She is a SFWA & HWA Active member.
Angel lives with Boo, Simon, and Lapis Lazuli (kitties) in Seattle, where the long, dark winters feed her penchant for all things spooky and cozy.

We are also very pleased that a number of members have stepped forward to assist Angel as she takes up this task, but please allow for minor delays in certain functions over the next short period as we move to take up the enormous task Mark Worthen so effectively delivered in the past.
