Sally is in charge of planning adventurous outings, Build Days, picnics and parties! If it involves something fun, food and drink, she’s there making sure everyone knows where to be, when to be there and what to expect. She plans most of our events, presents panels at conventions, and keeps the Archon website updated and current. A clothing enthusiast at heart, if you need help putting together an outfit, this is your lady. Have an idea for an event? Please don’t be shy to ask our Mistress of Entertainment what to do to make it happen!

She sends Welcome Messages to new members, polices the Facebook page, and updates the Google calendar. She presents panels at conventions and occasionally plans an event. She’s also a fiction writer and editor: her stories have appeared in Historical Lovecraft, Candle in the Attic Window, and Volumes 1, 2, and 4 of The Crimson Pact series.

Jayne is an incredibly talented mixed media artist. Her artistic talents are used by the Archon to create promotional flyers for our events. Her interests include art, science fiction, costuming, fabrication and most importantly: DRAGONS!   See her art through the link below.

Leah J. Wilde answers to Miss Wilde, Leah, and, on occasion, her real name! She is well known aboard the Archon for her sewing skills and has been named the ship’s steam-stress by Captain LaGrange. More than willing to share her sewing knowledge and budget costuming tips, Leah is one of our main panel presenters during convention. As Convention Liaison, Jennilee’s primary duty is communicating with conventions at which the airship plans to appear. You can read about her sewing exploits at her blog, Miss Leah Wilde’s Sewing Blog.
