Day 07 - Jespah's Enterprise

Janet Gershen-Siegel, or Jespah as she usually posts as on forums, has been a mainstay of TrekUnited right back to the beginning and has always pushed the envelope of what we can do. She has been a tireless worker, editing the adult anthologies and bringing her professional experience to spearheading the promotional campaigns that make our work visible to as wide a slice of Star Trek fandom as possible.

This isn't the only reason why I publish her work, although it is absolutely correct that someone who is an active contributor to the work of getting everyone's work out should be shown every consideration to have their own work put out. The fact of the matter is that she is a good author, technically and creatively. She writes imaginative material regularly and at length, exploring different moods and styles, she blogs on a wide variety of subjects as well as writing and she reads the work of others and comments supportively. By immersing herself in the writing community, her work has developed, gained depth and improved with the feedback of her peers.

The major Star Trek series that Janet writes in is the NX-01 Enterprise era, with original characters (OC's) mixed in with canon crew, which we used as the major theme for her covers.
