Veteran New Yorker now living in Abu Dhabi (which is not Dubai); novelist, literary critic, literature professor at NYU Abu Dhabi and former columnist for The National, the English-language newspaper of the UAE.

Works in progress: "The Corset and the Veil," a novel based on the extraordinary life of Lady Hester Stanhope; and "Children's Literature and the Post-National Imagination," which explores how YA literature written "after the American century," to use Brian Edwards' term, is moving to a post-national view of the world.

Amy Bartlett

Editor / Writer

A 20 year veteran of Marketing, Media, and Ministry, Amy Bartlett has built a career on finding and delivering the story -- especially the story of God in contemporary society. Graduating from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts and serving as an editor for Guideposts in New York City, Bartlett relocated to her home state of California serving independent clients for nearly a decade (e.g., Rhapsody [now Napster], Purpose Driven Publishing, KLOVE/Air1, Barbour Books, etc.), and directing children’s arts education and drama therapy programs for North Coast Repertory Theater. In 2008, Bartlett focused efforts exclusively in Marketing and Advisory Management for San Diego’s New Venture Christian Fellowship (continuing through early 2020 as adjunct/consultant), and served 4+ years as Marketing & Digital Communications Director for Jessup University in Northern California. Having now settled in the Southeast (Hilton Head / Savannah area), Bartlett recently returned to writing / editing full time, and maintains "multi-passionate" pursuits in the Arts, including music and photography. Of these varied outlets, Bartlett states, “It’s impossible to pick a favorite format, but it’s impossible not to focus on a single Reason. My job is to hold a microphone to whatever the language, tool, or project, directly or indirectly fulfilling a modern day translation of the Great Commission, communicating through all things, Jesus.” For contact, more info, and "beyond writing," visit

Alex Telfer

Copy Writer/Freelancer/Content Editor/SEO

Ten years ago, a crack commando was sent to prison by a military court for a crime of grammar he didn't commit. This man promptly sulked before escaping from a maximum-security stockade into the Brentford underground. Today, still wanted by the government, he survives as a freelance writer. If you have a problem... if no one else can help... and if you can find him... maybe you can hire*... Alex Telfer. *Especially if the subject matter involves travel, sports, gambling, wildlife, London, social commentary, humour and more.
