RhylanRhylan Dane
Founder / Writer ___ thewizard(@)

Background: Formerly a freelance copywriter, Rhylan realized that writing one more word about lawyers or construction companies would cause her to go mad(der). Later on, her house collapsed and she was sued for damages.

She now manages Armorbelle and creates marketing thingamajigs for personal clients. Rhylan has wanted to be a pirate since the age of 3, and although she still has no idea how to sail, she’s become very adept at stabbing and plundering.


Strengths: Committing crimes in the (mostly) digital world, eating ungodly amounts of spicy food without dying, treasure hunting, speaking Japanese poorly.

Weaknesses: Cuteness, scheming without walking into stationary objects, loving the sun yet keeping a vampire’s hours, shinies.



Serena HawthorneSerena Hawthorne 
Writer ___ alavendermoon(@)


Serena is a tarot-reading witch and proud cat mom from southeast Wisconsin. She helps clients find clarity in their lives by promoting holistic care, spiritual guidance and everyday magic.

Serena enjoys reading, playing video games, and watching far too many YouTube videos. Her secret pastimes include crying over fantasy novels and feverish bouts of online shopping. You can find her blogging at Lavender Moon.

Strengths: Going through books faster than people go through air, drawing stick figures, making perfect hardboiled eggs, hitting all the notes in “Colors of the Wind.”

Weaknesses: Lumberjacks, bananas, decluttering, wearing socks that match.

Writer ___ @ZodiacEclipse

Background: A self-proclaimed nerd culture connoisseur, Joanna spends most of her time writing about video games. She has an affinity for off-beat indie titles and story-driven narratives.

When she’s not writing about imaginary worlds, she spends a fair amount of time crafting trinkets from them. You can find more of her work at

Strengths: Napping after coffee, making words good, expert level dog petting, hoarding ALL the chocolate.

Weaknesses: Sounding half as clever in person as she pretends to be online, making banal small talk with other moms at parenting functions, adulting.



Nicholas TozierNicholas Tozier 
Writer ___

Background: Nick is a self-taught songwriter and guitarist from the woods of Maine who loves to play tabletop games in his spare time. He runs the Lyric Writer’s Workroom, where he hosts a podcast to teach beginners and experienced musicians alike how to create music, develop their talent and find inspiration.

Weaknesses: Always coveting the next book, musical instruments, games, journaling too much, making truly unfortunate typos in the Armorbelle Writers Discord channel.
