Meet the Crew


Megan La Follett

Megan was born in Florence and went to college in Rome, but she hasn’t been to Italy yet — she’s looking forward to the day that isn’t true! A book lover from birth, she has fond memories of devouring every story from the children’s and folklore sections in her hometown library. Then she discovered Madeleine L’Engle, Anne McCaffrey, and Alexandre Dumas, and out came the flashlight under the bed covers. Before pursuing her passion in helping writers bring their stories to life, she graduated summa cum laude from Oregon State University with a bachelor’s degree in biology. It was during her years as a graduate student studying infectious diseases and immunology that her love for editing was kindled, and eventually developed into a career in publishing. She’s worked as an editor, book designer, and publishing director for a Houston-based publishing company. While the mountains of Oregon will always hold a place in her heart, she enjoys living in Texas sunshine with her husband and three children.


Carly Drake

After spending some time living it up in New York City, Carly returned to her hometown of Houston. Before she joined the team, she worked as a staff writer with Chart House Press, and as an editor and contributing writer for Upscale Living Magazine, iCandy456, and Fitness Republic. Carly earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Language and Literature from the New York Institute of Technology. Her first novel, a young adult historical fantasy, was published in October 2013. The sequel to Words Once Spoken followed in January 2015. Look for the first book in her new series, A Chosen War, from Reuts Publications by the end of the year.


Ashlie Cook

Ashlie graduated from the University of Tulsa with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design. She worked as an in-house designer for companies in Tulsa and Colorado Springs before moving to the Houston area, where her husband is a multi-site campus pastor, and she spent several years teaching Spanish before starting a family and returned to her graphic design roots as a freelancer.
