Overview

Introduced to the works of Jane Austen as a pre-teen, I've been enamored with books and publishing ever since. Past jobs include being a librarian assistant, author assistant, book cover designer, proofreader for Dreamspinner Press and Evernight Publishing, and editor/designer at Sexy Little Pages. Currently, I freelance my design services and work as a contest coordinator for Ryan Zee Author Marketing / BookSweeps.

I love working with authors and helping them reach a broader audience through quality visuals that help bring in sales. As a hybrid author myself, I have independently published short fiction in both the romance and erotica genres, alongside works published by HarperCollins UK, Cleis Press, and others.

Using my knowledge of the publishing industry, I'd love to help make your vision a reality! Areas of expertise include romance (all subgenres), urban fantasy, LGBTQAI+, erotica, and young adult.
