Meet the Mods

Welcome to the first in a series of posts to introduce you to the moderators of the Argyle Empire. Each of these wonderful people manages an SRFans Twitter account for a country where SR's books are available.

Today, we'll meet Gel, Sheila, and Tina.


One of Gel's many fine creations

Hello peeps! I'm Gel and I moderate @SRFansFilipino, and it's an honor to be here. :) I wanted to say that I'm the Number 1 fan of SR but of course a lot won't concur with that. So I'd rather say the Gabriel series is my TOP favorite book, and SR is my Number 1 favorite author.

A tidbit about myself: I'm a mother and wife; I have learned to romanticize my domesticated life for 5 years now since I used to work from home too; I love to travel and I love books. I write from time to time but I do not consider myself a poet; it's just me when I'm rambling.

I am so happy to be part of this beautiful family. I am also part of a fab team: Bookish Temptations ( )  It's amazing because I get to promote more of GI&GR from there.

I got to know GI&GR from Neda's review on the Bookish Temptations blog. That was me getting lost and looking for a new read after Fifty. Since Neda's too good on book reviews, I immediately got my copy and read both books in no time. And those sleepless nights were worth it. ;) I was so hooked and learned that SR is on Twitter, and I landed into these fabulous and gorgeous ladies (Argyle team and the other SR accounts) and the rest, as they say, is history. *wink wink*

London's famous Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament

I'm Sheila, moderator for @SRFansUK.

I worked in radio and for a national/international media company before I became a lady of leisure and very mature student.

I live in northwest England, close to the Lake District (think Wordsworth, Coleridge, Southey et. al.).

Being an SRFans moderator is fun for me as it means I get to help promote fantastic books by a super author. Also, I've 'met' lots of like-minded people who've become friends.

Thanks, and to everyone: let's enjoy the ride!


Bran Castle in Romania

I'm Tina, moderator for @SRFansRomania, one of the recent additions to the family of SR fans.

Five years ago, we packed our life and dreams in eight suitcases and moved to Canada.  I'm working in finance for a municipality in Ontario. I love to travel, dance and read. I've been blessed with two beautiful children: Alexandra, my 15 year-old daughter, and Daniel, my 14 year-old son. They are the light of my life.

I re-started reading about a year ago (settling into our new life took a while). I've been reading like crazy, until Gabriel's Inferno stopped me in my tracks. Something shifted inside of me. I felt I needed to get involved and help promote Sylvain Reynard's work. My dream is to hold in my hands the Romanian edition of Gabriel's Inferno.

Thank you everyone for your help and warm welcome.




Buna, sunt Tina administrez contul SR pentru Romania (@SRFansRomania).

Acum cinci ani ne-am impachetat viata si visele in opt valize si ne-am mutat in Canada. Lucrez in finante pentru municipalitatea din orasul in care locuiesc. Pasiunile mele sunt calatoriile, dansul si cartile. Am doi copii Alexandra (15 ani) si Daniel (14 ani), care sunt lumina ochilor mei.

Am re-inceput din nou sa citesc in urma cu un an (a durat ceva sa ne asezam in noua viata). Am citit neincetat pana cand Gabriel's Inferno m-a fermecat si am simtit ca trebuie sa stiu mai multe despre autor. Asa am hotarat ca sa ajut cu ce pot la promovarea muncii lui Sylvain Reynard. Sper ca intr-o zi sa tin in mana, editia in limba romana a Gabriel's Inferno.

Multumesc tuturor pentru ajutor si incurajari,

Thank you, Gel, Shelia & Tina, for sharing part of your background with us! It is so amazing that each of you come from a different part of the world as many of SR's fans do.It blows me away how our favorite, and brilliant author, SR, has brought us all together in friendship because of his Gabriel series. We've all fallen in love with Gabriel,SR, his compassionate heart, friendliness, and wonderful sense of humor through his alter ego, the SN. I don't believe there's another author who can compare to his uniqueness.Again, thank you for all your hard work and bringing smiles to our faces.
