Official Press Release
Houston, TX – February 12, 2007 – Penny-Farthing Press (PFP) is proud to
announce that they have hired Celina Paquette as their new Senior Editor.
Celina brings strong training and editorial abilities to her new position at
PFP and her contagious enthusiasm has won over the entire staff.
Celina is new to the comic book industry but hopes to bring her love of all
kinds of literature to the production process at PFP. “I am learning so
much about this industry,” she states, “and I look forward to being an
integral part in continuing the high standards that PFP is known for.”
When asked what she hopes to accomplish at PFP, she says, “I hope to work
with more great authors such as Barbara Hambly, who is writing our Anne
Steelyard graphic novels. And since I would also like to bring my literary
sensibility to the world of comics and graphic novels, I find PFP to be a
perfect fit for me. They are dedicated to publishing high quality books with
strong story content.”
Celina has also attended several comic book conventions with PFP including
San Diego Comic Con and Small Press Expo in Maryland. “New York Comic Con
is our next convention and I’m excited to meet the fans and professionals
who will be there. This is the other part of my job that I really enjoy. I
like meeting new writers and talking about new project ideas for PFP. One
day I would love to be a part of the entire process of finding a writer or
script and watching it come to fruition as a PFP comic or graphic novel.”
Celina Paquette is a native Houstonian who received her Bachelor’s degree in
English from the University of Houston. She then went on to earn a Master’s
degree in Creative Writing from Texas State University in San Marcos.
Before PFP, she worked as an editorial intern on university publications and
