WHO ARE WE?

Sam Bartlett
publisher and art director

Before founding Roll & Play Press, Sam spent over six years working in the publishing industry designing books for the likes of LEGO, Star Wars, Blizzard and Marvel. He is a games master at The London Wargaming Guild, where he runs both homebrew campaigns and one-shot adventures. In his spare time, when he isn’t painting miniatures he is eating pizza.

kay bartlett
business manager

Kay began her career as a financial crime consultant before training as a lawyer. When she’s not knee-deep in contracts and legal books, or working with Sam to keep Roll & Play Press running, you will find her watching Korean dramas, playing one of her expanding collection of guitars or role-playing as a cyborg and recklessly endangering NPCs in a sci-fi campaign.

Beth Davies
Managing Editor

No stranger to fantastical characters, Beth has previously written and edited books about ninja, superheroes, space travellers and princesses (although never all at once) for Disney, Warner Bros and Star Wars. Her love of writing started at an early age, and she spent most of her childhood reading, dreaming up stories and filling various notebooks with characters and their often magical adventures.

Pasha Akinrinwa
Admin Support

Pasha is currently a freelance English tutor and student at The Institute of Certified Bookkeepers. She is a keen ‘bookstagrammer’ and spends many hours reading, reviewing or taking pictures of books for her book blog. Her kryptonite is ice cream.
