About me

Industry Publishing
Location Langley, Washington, United States
Introduction I love words and language ... spelling, vocabulary, style, syntax ... all of it. I proudly admit I've been a grammar nerd ever since I was a reading-obsessed child. I had three vocational aspirations growing up: Righting the wrongs of public language abuse as sheriff of the Grammar Police; becoming a physician; and, of course, being a writer. Okay, so the Grammar Police isn’t a “real job.” And while I’ve always been a writer at heart, I found out later in life that I also loved design, which over time, strangely and serendipitously brought me back to my dream of being a physician. Huh? Okay, so there’s no stethoscope around my neck, no white coat with my name embroidered on it, but bedside—or rather, computerside—manner is indeed paramount in the profession, which is what I thought I’d be best at anyway. Yep, I’m now a "book doctor" — professional editor, cover and interior designer, publishing partner, hand-holder, and cheerleader for authors and their labors of love. The perfect marriage of my passions and expertise, I get to be my technical-creative-perfectionist-compassionate-nurturing self, all as I help people realize their dreams of being published. How great is that?
