author, editor, publisher, presenter, teacher, writing consultant
In 2009 I went from a career in technical writing to prose and poetry, and wrote and published two books, Episodes, A poetic memoir, and Solving the World's Titanic Struggles of 100 essays. I started a publishing company, ABLiA Media Co, in order to help me and others publish. I've added editing, presenting, tutoring and consulting to my services. I love helping writers improve and move forward because I do too. Everyone has a story that can be told well with encouragement, experience, and knowledgable sources.
My goal is simple: Assist you to tell or share your stories in whatever way you need.
Experience You Can Trust
Used self-publishing for six books and have helped dozens of writers understand the process from draft manuscript through polished result. I can help you choose your best publishing platform, identify your best cost options and terms, and walk you through the process or complete it for you. You concentrate on your manuscript and I'll do the rest under your constant input.
