I spent 5 years as a book editor, then 10 as a professional book designer. After helping thousands of authors publish, I now focus on creating tools and resources to support indie authors and make publishing easier, while writing my own fiction and nonfiction.
I bring top-level promotion & visibility strategies to help authors sell books comfortably, by focusing on value and relationships - not sleazy marketing hacks. I excel at course creation and profit generating strategies for nonfiction authors, and writing fiction that readers love (and actually earns money).
