Meet The Team


Frankie Blooding

Editor-in-Chief/Cover Artist

Frankie started Whistling Book Press to help other authors. Its been a passion of hers since she took over The Novel Workshop on in 2002. Since then, she’s been learning the industry and assisting other authors in any way she can while working a full-time job, juggling family, and crocheting.

Don’t be fooled, though. Frankie pushes hard. She’ll have the tough conversations with you about your novel and she won’t pull any punches. She’s not the nice one.

Bryon Quertermous

His most recent position was as a commissioning editor for Angry Robot Books. Books he’s edited have been chosen as the best of the year by USA Today, Library Journal, and others.

He is wonderful to work with. His structural edits are in-depth and helpful. He is the kind of editor who prefers building the author up instead of tearing them down. He has a keen sense of structure and flow, and understands the nuances of genre fiction. He’s an asset to any project.

Philip is a man of few words unless he’s writing a book. He’s got amazing insight in science-fiction and he’s our go-to guy for anything sci-fi. He’s great to work with and we enjoy having him on oboard a project. He works as a freelance author and editor and has worked with several well-known authors.

Kyra Dune

Contract Line Editor

Kyra Dune was born in Oklahoma, but spent most of her life travelling with her family. She is the author of over 30 fantasy novels, including: Shadow of the Dragon, Elfblood, and Firebrand. And also works as a freelance editor. As a child, her favorite stories were those that told of ordinary children being whisked away to magical lands. She has yet to find her own secret wardrobe or rabbit hole, but she hasn’t given up the search. You never know what might be waiting over the next rainbow.

Del Davis

Contract Proofreader

USA Today Bestselling Author, Deliaria Davis, grew up in the cold winters and mild summers of Anchorage, Alaska, where her heart remains to this day. She met her husband there and would return in a heartbeat.

She has five amazing kids, and when she isn’t writing she is homeschooling her autistic son, or helping her youngest son with therapy for his disabilities. Currently, Del resides in Spokane, WA, where she is hoping to someday be able to afford a house big enough for each of her kids to have their own door to slam.

Until then, she will continue to write whatever pops into her head, edit in her spare time, and loves to interact with her fans.
