Trevor Van Winkle
Creator/Writer/Producer, Voice of Sam Bailey and De Witt
Trevor Van Winkle has been telling stories for as long as he can remember. Raised in southern Oregon, he was instilled with a love of books, film, and music from a young age, producing short films with his friends and family members throughout middle and high school before attending Biola University, where he majored in Cinema and Media Arts with an emphasis in Production. Shortly after graduation, he moved to Mammoth Lakes, CA and self-published his first novel, The Gräzland Tales, then began producing Homestead on the Corner in 2019 with the help of actors from the local theatre community. Following the beginning of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, he created the spinoff series The Sheridan Tapes as a way to keep himself and the other members of the Homestead team sane.

Voice of Maria Sol
A world traveler and adventure-seeker, Amitola spends her time reading, seeking out interesting (and hopefully haunted) places, and looking for more stories to obsessively consume. What began as a passion for literature evolved into memorizing epic poetry and writing, and she loves the versatile nature of podcasting and audio drama. She has acted in several plays, participated in poetry recitation competitions, and enjoys the grand play that we all call life.
Voice of Chief Morrison
