Clients’ books are in print!

Books by two of “my” local authors (that is, I did editing and design & layout for one, and editing and proofreading for the other) are in existence! I’m so pleased for them. These are really fun, creative projects.

Award-winning moment!

This was so exciting – I’m a recipient of a 2015 Big Pencil Award from Rochester, NY’s Writers and Books literary center for being “A teacher of adults who has inspired the creation and appreciation of literature” and someone who has “contributed significantly in the advancement, creation, and understanding of literature in the Rochester community.” The award presentation was on November 14 – and I’m still glowing.
