Nancy joined Parallax in 2012, with many years of publishing and bookselling experience. She cut her teeth in publicity back when we all used typewriters and carbon paper and has enjoyed marketing books at publishing houses large and small, on staff and as a consultant.
Unable to stay away from her favorite bookstores, the legendary Upper West Side branch of Shakespeare and Company (alas no more) and the Harvard Book Store, both were forced to make a decision: hire her or arrest her for loitering. Thank goodness they chose the former.
When not at the office, Nancy can be found endlessly hurling a ball to Lily, her fussy Jack Russell terrier, who sometimes serves as Parallax’s office security system and mascot.
Terry works primarily in transcribing and copyediting manuscripts. She’s grateful for listener-sponsored radio and audiobooks, which keep her company on her long commute. Having lived for nineteen years in national parks and meditation centers, she’s slowly learning the finer points of popular culture.
Terri is the person responsible for moving Parallax books from manuscript to finished product. She’s a visual artist, writer, and artistic collaborator in every imaginable medium.

Jason is a versatile and eclectic thinker, writer, and teacher working to empower and benefit all beings in everything he does.
