I've worked with or for many of Seattle's major arts nonprofits. Working at Cornish College of the Arts lets me spread the word about a 100+-year-old institution that has helped foster artists of all types in Seattle: http://www.cornish.edu.

Since I've been writing, publishing, or working around the book business for all of the 21st century, I support this industry's exciting growth in the Pacific Northwest. As the volunteer news editor for the website Book Publishers Northwest, I help promote and foster publishing in Washington. Check it out at: http://www.bookpublishersnw.com.
Three of my novels are set in the popular Forgotten Realms universe published by Wizards of the Coast (a New York Times bestselling publisher located here in Washington): Cold Steel & Secrets, Crypt of the Moaning Diamond, and City of the Dead. My superhero YA "Wrecker of Engines" is part of the e-book package Cobalt City Rookies published by NW publisher Timid Pirate. My short stories appear in more than a dozen anthologies (complete listing at GoodReads). There's more novels coming soon. Check my author page at GoodReads for updates.
Specialties: Public relations and marketing, engagement through all forms of social media, book publishing for small independent publishers and nonprofits, recruiting and working with volunteers, print buying, editing (AP and Chicago Manual of Style), and writing.
