Webmaster / Senior Editor
Tal Valante

Tal's passion in life is building worlds, whether digital ones using programming languages, or literary ones using plain ol' English. When she's not buried neck-deep in code, you can find her editing manuscripts, designing fantasy worlds, or torturing characters in her own original works.

Tal has five years' experience as a chief programmer and system analyst. She has entered the world of m/m fiction with Guiltless Pleasure Publishing, which she gladly closed down in favor of joining Riptide.

You can get Tal going forever on her favorite subjects with a few well-placed words, such as "Babylon 5" and "Assassin's Creed." A word of caution, though: "forever" means just that . . .
