About me: For over fifteen years I’ve been helping authors get traction and build an audience for their books. I have planned and executed publicity and marketing campaigns for the New York Times-bestselling books Chasing Light: Michelle Obama Through the Lens of a White House Photographer, Rad Women Worldwide, and What Color Is Your Parachute?, among many others.
My experience crafting thoughtful and effective promotional campaigns for top authors puts me in a unique position to help you build your audience and maximize sales. I have developed marketing and publicity campaigns for Ten Speed Press/Penguin Random House, Heyday, and a number of arts organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area.
I am a member of the San Francisco Bay Area Women’s Poetry Salon and have work both published and forthcoming. I look forward to helping your project take flight!
