Meet the Staff
You will be
introduced to the entire team, from production staff to illustrators,
and everyone in-between.
XWPVS was the brainchild of Hadley Langosy
(shown much younger than her 20 something years in this photo.)
The website went online to advertise the Virtual Series in July of 2001.
The first episode, Honor Bound, which brought Xena back from the dead,
made its internet debut on Monday September 24th, 8:00 p.m. EST.
co-wrote And Egypt Shall Rise with
Bezalel, Flowers, Feathers & Family, and Arabian Nights
with Heather Creely.
She was the
original Producer/Director of the Xena: Warrior Princess Virtual Season 7,
helping to bring seventeen episodes online with her team and having a hand
in the design of the original website. Unfortunately, relocating from the
UK back to the US and family responsibilities lead Hadley to turn the
virtual season over to her trusted second in command, Macavity (Chris
Schinella). She is currently raising two children in the Boston area and
working as a freelance web designer.
Nicknamed: The Rob
Started with Hadley. Took control of xwpvs December 2001 while Hadley made
the transition from England to the USA.
Given official control in 2002.
Chris worked in the law
enforcement division of the NYC Taxi and Limousine Commission and worked
on scripts when off duty.
Currently retired, she maintains
the website. When the XWPVS was fully active she was responsible for: Web
updates, episode coding, liaison to translators, creator of all
scheduling, idea person, writer and final decision maker on episodes.
Hence the nickname, The Rob.
Wrote: Wrath of Hell
co-wrote: Honor Bound, Child's
Play, Wampum, Foiled Plans, and Mercy of Heaven
Production Manager/Beta-Reader Coordinator
She joined the xwpvs-xenastaff shortly after its inception.
Designated as the beta reader coordinator due to her ability to speed
read, her language skills, and ability to communicate in a delicate manner
with all concerned.
She is also one of the teams
writers, being responsible for the Tear Jerker, "War Horse",
and co-wrote Honor Bound, Child's Play, Wampum, Foiled Plans, and
Mercy of Heaven
Her duties also include assigning
beta readers scripts, providing deadlines, relaying the comments and
suggestions to the writers in regards to their script.
Kathy joined the XWPVS as an illustrator at the beginning of the season.
She had submitted an illustration for the fan art page, and of course, we
just HAD to grab her. As you have seen in the episodes she has
illustrated, her talents could not be overlooked.
Her dedication, artistic skills,
and coordination abilities had earned her a position on the staff. She has
illustrated a number of episodes, both alone and with the assistance of
several of our hard working artists on staff.
Kathy has also co-written Lost
Vega along with Trish, gina, Amber, and MaryCat.
In real life, Kathy is an
architect. Her business url is:
Katherine Austin, AIA
Kathy has had several showings of
her artwork, most recently on classic car paintings. If you'd like to see
her work, this url will take you there,
classic car paintings and if
you saw our main page, you know she is having another showing between
April 22, 2012 - June 2, 2012.
Secretary/Public Relations officer
Mary handles pretty much all of the xwpvs email. She maintains the xwpvs-Discussion
List, The team owner and team email list, ensures that the most current
episode is sent to out to the members of the xwpvs, and on occasions when
our server was down, manages to get the episode posted on her own website.

The Core Team
Who Helped make the xwpvs tick?
In all honesty, the XWPVS would be a blank page if it weren't for the
numerous volunteers who helped in the production of the virtual weekly
Many of them had a vote in what we opted to air, offered suggestions to
potential writers, and generally pointed writers in the right direction.
Considering that many of our
volunteers worked full time, and/or were full time students with jobs
after school, the dedication they showed - not only to us at the XWPVS,
but to the show itself - speaks volumes of their character.
We'd like to introduce you to
those who helped make the Xena: Warrior Princess Virtual Series tick.
Bezalel (real name unknown) hails from Greece. She was our first web
master, assisting Hadley in the design and layout of the web site, coding
episodes and getting them online on a weekly basis. She worked with the
team for several months, but her editing schedule at work took her away
from us. She also co-wrote
And Egypt Shall Rise with Hadley Langosy.
Nando (real name unknown) hails from the U.S.
At the time, he was a young full time art student and an up and coming
young artist who blew us away with what he could do with the program "DreamWeaver"
(I think that's what it was called).
He took over the duties and chores of the web master after
Ariel and Bezalel resigned to pursue their career opportunities.
Nando also designed some
fantastic background images for our pages, as well as some of the costumes
for our heroines, not to mention a weapon or two. Unfortunately, the
background images managed to get corrupted and I've gone back to sweet and
He worked with the VS for several months before having to
dedicate his time to his college
responsibilities and class projects.
The team writers consisted of
several individuals who contributed a number of scripts for the VS. In
reality, the scripts they had written were geared as back ups in the event
a writer could not meet their specific deadline for a script they were
working on. Good thing we had them, or ... well, you get the picture...
Goldfeder, was not only a point person for a number of writers who
submitted work, as well as a beta reader, she also assisted in
writing Honor Bound and was also co-writer of Spooky Sea
Side Spirits, and Face of Evil with Heather Creely.
To us, she was also
known as the Liz Friedman of the xwpvs (Iris constantly reminds the
team about Xena and Gabrielle's "relationship".)
Heather Creely was also a point person,
beta reader and writer for the XWPVS. She edited Go West young
Warrior - a story by CN Winters and she co-wrote several
episodes: Arabian Nights, with Hadley Langosy,
Spooky Sea Side Spirits and Face of Evil with Iris
Goldfeder, Flowers, Feathers & Familywith Hadley Langosy,
Magenta (real name unknown) was also a point person, beta reader and
writer of many of the VS episodes. She wrote: The Game, Future
Echoes, Wolf's Bane, The Revenant,
She co-wrote Wampum
Karen Lines may not have been one of our
staff, but she did contribute a number of scripts and deserves
mention here. She is the author of: The Laurel Tree, Small
Sacrifices and Queen Maeve's Grave.
41 Cyg (real
name unknown) was an
honorary core team member.
His reviews on the forum
were tactful, insightful, and managed to convey to the writers the "What
could have been."
He was inducted into the
core team shortly after the holidays and has provided very good
feedback, based on his research - especially with the "religious" arc
that took place at the end of Virtual Season 8.
The Artists without whom
there would be nothing but text on your screen are listed here. We
couldn't get everyone to donate a picture of themselves or too much of a
bio - but those who did submit something, are listed here.
This talented young woman takes the time
from her busy schedule as an Analyst for an organization that
performs character and fitness reports for wannabe lawyers (and
taking the bar exams across the country) to provide the xwpvs with
its teaser ads for each of our episodes. She's been doing them
since its debut on the internet back in 2001. At the current
time, we are trying to find her to update our bio and provide you
with a link to her site/s.
Gina has illustrated several episodes for
the series (on her own and working with her team mates), and also
contributed some writing on a 2 part episode that several of the
staff worked on together. She enjoys creating Xena & Gabrielle
art, as well as Goddess, fantasy and nature paintings, also
creating original commissions, as well as sells art prints of her
work. Gina’s artwork has been shown locally, and has also appeared
in Circle Magazine and in Sage Woman Magazine. She was a staff
writer for 3 years for Haute Doll magazine, and has also
contributed as a writer to Doll Reader Magazine.
is a registered nurse. She sent the xwpvs a sample of fan art for
our fan-art page. One look at her wonderful work, and we knew we
just HAD snatch her up, so we sent her off a little note asking if
she'd like to join our team. She joined us shortly after the
Christmas holidays, saying she'd only be able to do an
illustration here and there because of her busy schedule at the
hospital and raising a little one. Well, needless to say, she got
hooked. "Drawing Xena illustrations," she said, "can be VERY
therapeutic." Her illustrations made their debut in episode:
811 The Winter's Tale.
Since Trish debuted her artistic
talents on the XWPVS back in the day, she has since refined and
cultivated her artistic talents as she continued on in the art
field. Her artistry has expanded into not only the realistic
pencil art work, but also into graphic arts and beyond.
Currently, Trish has many clients for whom she does graphic work
for and takes private commissions for pencil art as well. She's
delved into the fantasy realm of realistic pencil art with her
depictions of mythological creatures and also stays grounded with
beautiful pencil family portraits and everything in between. You
too, can commission Trish Ellis for any and all of your art needs
or just take a leisurely stroll through her gallery! Either way,
you'll have an Artsy
Fartsy good time *g*
Vio, was a dedicated 'mom' of a toddler
at the time she began illustrations for us. After adding another
little Xenite to the Xenaverse, she had to resign to spend more
time with her family. She worked as a good team-mate with
numerous illustrators to provide wonderful artwork for numerous
scripts and has also worked on a script or two on her own.
was another talented artist who submitted artwork for our fan-art
page, and again the team saw another marvelous talent. We asked
her to join the art staff, which she did. Her illustrations made
their debut in the epidosde: 811 The Winter's Tale.
Sharon "Scully" and Rich
Provided us with a number of illustrations as well. It was
hard losing both of them to personal responsibilities.
Ariel assisted both Hadley and Bezalel in coding the
Yes, believe it or not, we do have our
episodes in other languages. Spanish and French. We would like to add
German, but have yet to find translators for that. The Spanish and
French episodes will be added to this site within the next several
months, but in the meantime, I would like to take the opportunity to
introduce the members who did the translating.
The translators have been a great help, not
only to the XWPVS, but to the fans of the syndicated television series.
They have worked hard and put in many long hours to translate each
script presented on the Virtual Season each week. However, due to the
amount of work required, they not only need volunteers to help them, but
require the scripts approximately 20 days before air date. There are
times the scripts are late, which is one reason why the xwpvs has worked
out a schedule, allowing for the translated scripts to air a week or two
longer than usual. Anyone wishing to volunteer to translate may offer
their services to the following:

Was the only staff member
of XenaCentro who provided an image. She was one of the core
members of XenaCentro who helped in coding the episodes into

I know there were at
least two more individuals who worked on the French versions,
but due to the loss of data on my numerous computers, their
names are lost. I hope that if they see this, they can contact
us and give us a little bio.
