ABOUT STEPHANIE Word Nerd / Bookworm / SUP'er / Beach lover / Collector of pens and journals / Sea glass hoarder / Owned by an old yellow dog

Stephanie began writing as soon as she could hold a pencil steady. Her first (terrible) poem was written at age 7 and she never stopped. The awful poems did stop when she took a course in Creative Non-Fiction at her alma mater,  Washington College.  This small liberal arts school in Chestertown is renown for its writing program and for its Sophie Kerr Prize - the largest undergraduate literary award in the country. In May 2001, Stephanie won that award for a collection of short stories based on her native roots on the Delmarva Peninsula.


Her inspiration to start Salt Water Media evolved from her love of writing and her own experiences with publishing her novel, Crossings.

"There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed." - Ernest Hemingway
"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." - Arthur C. Clarke
Treat lover / Expert napper / Lover of car rides / Supervisor / Enjoys belly rubs / Old yellow dog / Avid reader Shiloh is known as "The Supervisor" around the shop. He has received the "Employee of the Month Award" every month since Salt Water Media opened its doors. (There is some concern about vote tampering since Shiloh counts the votes but that is another story.) He graciously accepts treats as well as belly rubs from passers-by. It's a proven fact that Shiloh is a wreck if he doesn't get at least 22 hours of sleep per day. 1999 - July 1, 2014
