Linda G Hatton, managing editor
Although Linda G Hatton graduated from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts with a degree in acting, she has been drawn to writing and art, including watercolor painting and jewelry, hat, and handbag design, as far back as she can remember. As a theater producer, her credits include her original plays and adaptations performed at Seattle’s Annex Theatre and West Hollywood’s Black Box Theatre, as well as acting in plays she produced at Seattle's Freehold Theatre and NYU's Black Box Theatre, among others. She is a founding member of the writing community, Wordsmith Studio, and began Mouse Tales Press in 2010, naming the website “Mouse” in honor of her deceased father’s childhood nickname for her. When she isn’t busy reading through submissions or updating the website, she spends her days writing— poetry, novels, screenplays, web codes, or notes to her children. Otherwise she gets a little cranky.
