About Me


I studied fine arts at Illinois State University and I currently live outside of Chicago with my family. I also vote Mac over PC.

Why I  Design

Art of any kind allows the greatest freedom.  And, it’s fun.

Why I  Books

My favorite activity is reading.  I obsess over my favorite books, I fangirl over my favorite writers.  Every time I pick up a new book, a new adventure awaits.  There’s nothing better than burying your nose in a good book.

My Mantra

i go to seek A Great Perhaps.  You should too.

I get a ton of requests for information about self publishing, and hopeful authors requesting referrals for formatting and editing.

I have never self published. So I am collecting what I do know here, for your benefit.

My advice:

Care about your story. A LOT. Care about your writing. A LOT.

Writing is an art form. It has never been a get rich quick profession, writers write because they have a story to tell. Writers do not write because they want a yacht. Writers don’t write because they want a bigger kitchen. Writers write for themselves, and if we are lucky, they share it with us. Writing is my favorite art form, there are authors out there that can craft a sentence as well as Van Gogh could put the perfect brush stroke on canvas.

Two other things: EDIT. And then EDIT some more. Nothing is more irresponsible than having a manuscript riddled with mistakes.

Oh, and get a pretty cover. It’s the first impression people have of your book. ;)
