Sarah Hulcy

In Memoriam

Sarah Hulcy is a native Texas who was accidentally born in Miami, Florida, due to the untimely transfer of her father by his employer (although she WAS conceived in Texas), but she returned to Texas as soon as possible. She worked in various fields but almost all of them involved forcing various types of machines to do what she told them – typewriters, typesetting machines, computers, copiers, faxes, Telex machines, adding machines, comptometers, dedicated word processors and a host of other objects that are generally uncooperative on a daily basis. Aside from a short stint as a reluctant business owner, her main areas of expertise were in typesetting, commercial art and advertising, and in drudgery in the service of the legal profession. Most of this activity caused her to have the ability to type ridiculously fast. Unfortunately, she’s old enough that the term “ergonomics” had not been invented until very late in her career, which bit her on the butt, sidelining a promising career in “support staff” activities.

In 2010, Sarah accidentally became entangled with a writing group through a certain social media service (initials FB) and her life has not been the same since. She began helping Janet Morris and a group of writers with the resurrection of the “Heroes in Hell” series that began in the 1980s, producing 12 volumes, all of which Sarah just happened to own. This came about mainly due to the fact that the first planned new volume bore the title “Lawyers in Hell” a particularly significant happenstance. Having written millions of words of documents with exciting titles like: “Utilizing the Imaging and Database Software in Order to Maximize the Effectiveness of Your Next Document Production,” it had never occurred to her to write fiction… but as the creation of “Lawyers in Hell” progressed, she was encouraged to try her hand at writing a short story for the book. Imagine her surprise to discover that she actually had a sort of knack for imagining things that had never happened and documenting them!

She also assists in harrying the poor authors of the Hell shared world series into (once again) doing what she (and the publisher) want them to do, which involves bandaging skinned egos, patting heads that have been bashed repeatedly against brick walls, providing mother-hen and den-mother services, as well as proofing, copy-editing, formatting and generally wrestling short stories and novels into submission (pun intended). This serendipitous sequence of events has improved her outlook significantly and she intends to continue in these activities until the end of time.
