Mouse Tales Press is made up of Los Angeles-based managing editor Linda G Hatton and Seattle-based
copyeditor Elizabeth Johnson. The two met in New York City while attending New York University.
Linda G Hatton started Mouse Tales Press as a place where new writers would feel safe submitting their work. Her background in theater has given Linda a preference for works in which the character voice is strong. She finds poems and short stories brilliant when they tell a life story in only a few lines or pages.
On a side note, when deciding on a name for the website, Mouse Tales Press popped into Linda's head. “Mouse” was the childhood nickname given to her by her father, and since he had recently died, she named the site in his honor.
After working as a journalist for more than a decade, Elizabeth Johnson further sharpened her editing skills in the University of Washington’s editing certificate program. She is now on the board of directors for the Northwest Independent Editors Guild. She was very excited when the latest edition of The Chicago Manual of Style came out, and if you’re not careful, she will talk your ear off about serial commas and em dashes.
