Rich Oxenham (he/him) is the founder of Hatchlings Games and the lead designer behind the project. He earned a creative writing degree and went on to try the life of a novelist. Rich, however, is a born extrovert and before long was craving collaboration. With Hatchlings Games, he has been gifted the opportunity to work with creatives he deeply admires, honour a decade working with the Deaf community and fulfil a dream of making something his daughters would be proud of. With INSPIRISLES that dream has come true. Now Rich hopes to make TTRPG design his full time career and turn this small business into a publishing house for other family-friendly games.
Kathryn Oxenham (she/her) got lured into Dungeons & Dragons by her husband Rich and has never looked back. A born geek, she attended a theatre school for ten years as a child and found it helped with her crippling shyness. INSPIRISLES was very much Rich’s baby until she could no longer take an evening of gaming (Sims or Stardew Valley) interrupted and became his sounding board, editor and anchor for when his flights of imagination bordered on the absurd. Kathryn also works with the Deaf community and finds it incredibly rewarding. When she's not acting as referee to their young daughters, she is one half of the writing team.
