Let me tell you a story. . .

It doesn’t begin with once upon a time, but it has many ever afters. When the final page is turned, the written word becomes more than just print trapped within the covers of a book. Books are impressions of humanity, preserved in the well-worn pages of vintage titles and in the adaptive print of eBooks. Each one has a story that goes far beyond the final full stop, and I aspire to be a part of the stories in their creation. As the publishing industry continues to be increasingly innovative, I write to explore, read to enlighten, and edit to amplify diverse voices. That’s my happily ever after. Happy reading!
