Editor-in-Chief: Jaynie Royal
Jaynie Royal is the editor-in-chief at Regal House Publishing. While Jaynie’s academic background is in history and archaeology, she has long nursed a passion for literature. After spending many years navigating the publishing industry, Jaynie decided to start a new enterprise that invested deeply, meaningfully and significantly in its authors: Regal House Publishing. Since, Regal House has grown to encompass two imprints: Pact Press and Fitzroy Books. Jaynie is extremely proud of the talented editing team that has been assembled at Regal and thrilled to provide all of our authors with a high level of editorial excellence.
Senior Editor: Pam Van Dyk
Pam Van Dyk lives in Raleigh, North Carolina. She holds an MFA in Creative Writing from Queens University of Charlotte. Prior to receiving her MFA, she received a PhD in Education Research and Policy Analysis from North Carolina State University. As a volunteer reader for the Raleigh Review Literary Magazine and QU Literary Magazine she enjoyed the process of reviewing manuscripts and offering recommendations to the editors. When it comes to her own writing she adheres to the philosophy that one must learn writing from reading. Thus, she spends a great deal of her free time wandering around book stores and adding books to her ever-growing ‘to read’ list. A selection of her fiction has been anthologized by the Maine Review, Outrider Press, and Flying South.
Editor: Elizabeth Lowenstein
Elizabeth is an editor at Regal House Publishing. She lives near San Jose, California, where she has been doing research and drafting opinions for the state Court of Appeal for the past 29 years. In her spare time she enjoys proofreading and copyediting for anyone who asks—a student applying to college or graduate school, a scientist about to submit a paper for publication, one of her own colleagues at the court, or just anyone who wants help with syntax, punctuation, etc. Elizabeth has a B.A. from the University of California Santa Cruz, a Ph.D. in psychology from Stanford, and a J.D. from U.C. Hastings College of the Law. She’s looking forward to retirement, when she can go back to school and learn something useful, like Spanish.
