Matt
Keefe

STUDIO
MANAGER

MATT KEEFE is a writer and editor who has worked in the tabletop gaming and publishing industries for over 20 years. He was previously the editor of White Dwarf magazine and has played Legend of the Five Rings since the mid-1990s.

Lottie
Llewelyn-Wells

EDITOR

Lottie is a bibliophile who took a wrong turn in the wardrobe and ended up as an editor – luckily it was the best choice she ever made. She’s a geek and fangirl with an addiction to unicorns, ice hockey and ice cream.

Favourite dinosaur: the diplodocus.

Gwendolyn
Nix

EDITOR

A book dragon from the beginning, Gwen has amassed a hoard of science fiction and fantasy stories and is always hungry for the next tale to devour. Once upon a time, she’d been a marine biologist, but through a series of events, has ended up as an editor. Like Sasquatch, she can be found somewhere in the Rocky Mountains writing her next novel, researching things that go bump in the night, and taking the road less traveled.

Favourite shark: thresher.

Jack Doddy

Jack
Doddy

Production
Co-Ordinator

The real world is hard. Thus, Jack chooses to live perpetually in games and novels. From sci-fi to fantasy, from tabletop to video, it’s all fine as long as he doesn’t have to acknowledge reality. Within Aconyte, he performs administrative tasks and supports all aspects of book production.

Favourite class: Game Master.
Ashley Stephens

Ashley
Stephens

Book Marketing
& Publicity Manager

Ashley has worked in the entertainment business for most of her career. From walking red carpets with your favorite WWE Superstar, or premiere’s of the latest Star Wars or Marvel film, she has done it all… Except publishing that is. She’s new to publishing and loving every second of it! Though she loves American football (and can beat you in fantasy), she knew she was a nerd the first time she saw Lord of the Rings. She loves all things dragons (yes she’s obsessed with Game of Thrones), vampires and elves! When she’s not hard at work, she’s taking a snooze next to five snoring dogs, watching a movie, or football, or jet-setting to some exotic locale with her husband Michael.

Favourite elf: Legolas.

Nick
Tyler

BOOK PRODUCTION
COORDINATOR

Internal and external book design, but also fills in the gaps between words with systems and webstuff. He lives happily detached from reality, in a largely imaginary domestic world of cats, science fiction & fantasy, LEGO, and improvisation with MissImp. Creator of The Improvised Star Wars Show, and occasional Nanowrimo winner.

Favourite Lego minifigure (today): Portal Emperor.

Our Lovely Office​

Asmodee Entertainment is based in an amazing building in Nottingham, England. The Star Brewery opened in 1852, producing beer for Shipstones until 1991. Now it contains us (and a range of other businesses). It’s a pretty cool home, featuring four-foot thick walls and more metal stairs than you can imagine.
