My Story

In the 1970s my calling was the theatre including public relations and marketing, moving into producing and directing in several regional theatres in Pennsylvania and Maine. A wonderful time of youth, travel, hard work and growth. The 1980s  found me stepping into the technical world of the design and development of Interactive Multi-Media Videodisc-based Training Programs. With my art background (Philadelphia Museum College of Art) and writing skills (Charles Morris Price School of Public Relations and Advertising), I easily dove into the new technology. We were a merry band of Digital Pioneers! It was in that world, I heard the industry publishing division calling me to become Associate Editor for the leading videodisc and digital industry trade paper. My area of expertise quickly became multimedia-museum-exhibit-development and writing: Videodiscs in Museums: A Project and Resource Directory and becoming a trainer and consultant to US and International museums on utilizing interactive media in their exhibits.  

On to the 1990s and the beginning of a whole new world. Writing and editing software manuals in diverse arenas, educational media training materials and newsletters for holistic lifestyles. In the mid-90s I also took on editing and ghostwriting book length manuscripts. This is where I have found my true home and joy. 

Through the wonders of technology, I have had the opportunity to work with authors from around the world. Each manuscript becomes a new exploration of the intimate relationship that develops between author and editor. I find nothing more exciting than holding each hot-off-the-press title for the first time – with awe! Visit the Sample Titles page for some of the books my amazing authors have published.
