Dark Globe Senior Writer/Assistant Editor – Quill (Laura Pfundt); I came across Quill just prior to Creating The Dark Globe at The Quill Wielder Site. From what I could see on her site, she was a very Talented and Spirited Writer, and would make a good addition to our Crew. I was right. Quill has ended up being one of the Driving Forces Behind The Dark Globe’s Success. She was made a Senior Writer in December, 2011, and an Assistant Editor in April, 2012.
She also has an Author Site for her novels: Laura Pfundt. This is a place for her to write about her journey to becoming a published author.
Dark Globe Senior Writer – Pdk (Patrick Dykie); This is the Second Blog that Pdk has Worked with me on, he was also one of my Writers over on my One Knight Site (Back When That Site Was Active). I Orginally Found Him on his Site Simple Observations. Pdk is a very, very, Strong Writer. Just about anything he Writes, is worth taking a look at. Pdk made Huge Contributions towards getting The Dark Globe Off The Ground, with an Assortment of different Types of Writing, and was also made a Senior Writer in December, 2011.
Dark Globe Senior Writer/Assistant Editor – Pete “Ace” Howorth; Well, come on, we all know Pete, Right? Pete is a Writer I’ve also worked with, as he was also one of my One Knight Site Writers. Pete is most Renowned for his Blog Evolution of Insanity, the Day to Day Life of the More than Common Man, lol. He also flexed his Creative Writing Muscles with his One Knight Site Contributions, Insanity’s Ascension. And then went on to Create His The Writing Asylum. Pete was also made a Senior Writer in December, and later was made one of our Assistant Editors. He also walked away with One of the Three Best Blogger of The Year Awards, in our Dark Globe Inaugural Outstanding Artist Awards. Around here we call him “Ace”, as he is surely an Ace up the sleeve of The Dark Globe.
Dark Globe Senior Photographer – Mark (Jonah Mark Cubil Avila); Mark is a Great Photographer I found over at Mark – Photoblog. He has made Great Contributions to The Dark Globe, and was made a Senior Photographer for the Site in January, 2012. If you haven’t checked out his Site, do.

I Brought Kirsty on as a Senior Photographer/Writer, as I felt Everything about Her and Her Site Rings of Professionalism, and I am Thrilled to have her with us. She was Quickly made an Assistant Editor, and Also was The Winner of 2011′s Dark Globe Outstanding Artist Award Photographer of The Year, and now Contributes Greatly to the Overall Look of the Site, Including our Contest Award Badges.
