Lanelle Brent

Copy Editor

Lanelle was a military brat who lives in Northern California, but was born in Tuskegee, Alabama. Her father was the first Tuskegee Airmen of the famed Black fighter pilots of WWII. She spent many years working as a paralegal for a private law firm, then the CA State Assembly before retiring and becoming a full-time copy editor from home. This enables her to travel with her mother to help educate youth and community groups about the legacy of the Tuskegee Airmen. Even though she was born in Alabama and educated in various states and overseas, Lanelle proudly considers West Virginia her home.

Lauren Calder 

Lauren has been a reviewer with AdC since 2005.  She works with real estate and as a photographer in her spare time -- when she is not reading, sewing or crafting, cooking and baking, playing sports, swimming, or anything else that keeps her mind occupied. She enjoys reading all types of fiction and non-fiction. Being a history buff, she favors historical novels that wind history into the fiction romance.

Heather Nordahl Files

Heather Nordahl Files has had her nose in a book for as long as she can remember. Having worked in retail and banking, she is currently a stay-at-home mom to two beautiful children. When not reading, she enjoys learning her family history; eating (and sometimes cooking) good food; and listening to a wide variety of music. Heather hopes her fourth decade is her best yet.



Sheila Griffin

Sheila Griffin has been a reviewer for ADC since 2002.  She is married and has three grown children, three amazing grandchildren.  Sheila enjoys romantic comedies, time travel, light science fiction and fantasy, especial paranormal romances.  She considers humor and happily-ever-after to be a winning combination.

Danielle Hill

Danielle Hill is a single bibliophile in her thirties who lives in Texas. She has more books than she knows what to do with, but can’t seem to say no to the ones she doesn’t own. She a Christian, loves movies and television, animals and gardening, arts and crafts, making and eating desserts, creative writing, and writing and talking about books.


Lacy Hill

My name is Lacy and I love words, whether written, spoken, or thought. So, it’s not so surprising that I spent most of my time reveling in words both in my spare time and in my job. I love reading books and fiction, predominantly romance, listening to music, watching TV shows and movies. I’m a writer and editor, a job I love because I work with words and the expression of thought. When I’m not doing any of those things, you are likely to find me writing, swimming, dancing, learning to play guitar, or playing Rock Band/Guitar hero.

Lenore Lovecraft


Lenore is an English grad who loves to read. She has moved over sixteen times in her life but was born in Ohio. Her interests vary so much that it is easier to say what she doesn't like. She is a sassy, fun, scorpio who is ready for any adventure, literary or otherwise, that is thrown at her.

Elizabeth Anne

I am a single mother to a wonderful four year old. We read together all the time. My love for books was not love at first sight. My mother loved to read and believed that it was important that I did too. It wasn't long before I fell in love with it, per her insistence. After I caught the "reading-bug" I never stopped. Reading is a big thing in my family. When I was younger my go-to genre was always paranormal, or anything with the slightest bit of magic. Even today it is one of my favorite genres but I do occasionally read things that are outside of my comfort zone.
