Imbrifex Books was founded in 2016 by Megan Edwards and Mark Sedenquist. Distributed to the book trade by Publisher’s Group West, all Imbrifex Books titles are available online and in bookstores throughout North America, the United Kingdom, and much of the world. Imbrifex Books is a member of the American Association of Publishers (AAP), the Independent Book Publishers Association (IBPA), Audio Publishers Association (APA) and an associate member of the American Booksellers Association (ABA).
We got our start on the highways and byways of North America, where we spent six years on the road, traversing the continent many times over. Las Vegas, having drawn us in with its vibrant community, unique history, and central position in a fabulous landscape, is now our home base. Our road tripping past and our southern Nevada present have given us abiding appreciation for nonconformists, entrepreneurs, and people looking for new approaches to life. Our books reflect the creativity and artistry inspired and encouraged by the challenges, opportunities, and magnificence of the American Southwest.
Mark Sedenquist, Publisher, Travel Writer, Road Tripper, Reader
Born on the outskirts of Yellowstone National Park, Mark holds an A.B in Environmental Sciences from UC Berkeley, fought fire with the U.S. Forest Service, and has held certifications in hazardous management and disaster response for the American Red Cross. He is a co-founder of RoadTripAmerica.com, the first travel site on the Web that has produced and published new content every day since February, 1996. He has driven more than a million miles and visited every U.S. state and most Canadian provinces. He is also the publisher of eight other travel web sites and has written for print and online magazines for the last thirty years. Sedenquist is a seasoned event manager and logistician with nearly forty years of experience in event marketing, real estate management, retail sales, and book promotions and events. He supports organizations fostering literacy and reading, and he’s energized by living and working in the only major city in the United States founded in the 20th century. Committed to identifying and developing new literary talent, Sedenquist publishes travel books in three series and is seeking fiction that illuminates the truths of our era. He is always looking for his next book project, which is the metaphorical equivalent of always wanting to know what’s around the next bend.
Megan Edwards, Novelist, Editor, Classicist, Webmaster
Born on the outskirts of Chicago, Megan Edwards had attended at least thirteen different schools in places like Arlington, Virgina and San Jose, Costa Rica by the time she graduated from high school in Pasadena, California. She holds a B.A. in classics from Scripps College and also studied at the Intercollegiate Center for Classical Studies in Rome and the American School of Classical Studies at Athens. She earned an M.A. from Claremont Graduate University. Before becoming a novelist, Edwards taught Latin, art, English, and history in schools in California, Nevada, Germany, and Greece. She’s been a school principal, a real estate agent, a business marketer, web developer, copywriter, and a tour guide in a chocolate factory. During her time “on the road,” Edwards traveled through every U.S. state except Hawaii, which is still on her “to go” list. When research for a novel drew her to Las Vegas, she never expected the city to beguile her into staying. Now she can’t think of a place she’d rather call home. Edwards’s first three novels have all won literary awards, so she’s working on another one. She’s also always looking for works by other authors to publish through Imbrifex Books.
