BIO

I've been associated with the book world nearly my entire adult life. I spent more than twenty years working for major book publishers, including gigs as Deputy Publisher of Bantam Books (where I was founder of the Bantam Spectra imprint) and Publisher of Berkley Books and Avon Books. During that time, I worked with a tremendous range of industry professionals, including the great Ray Bradbury, the inestimable Ian Ballantine, the remarkable people at Lucasfilm, and brilliant writers far too numerous to mention – romance writers, science fiction writers, thriller writers, literary novelists, thought leaders, and great entertainers.

From the very beginning of my publishing career, though, I longed to be a writer myself. In fact, I got into the publishing business in the first place because I thought it would be advantageous to my writing career. For the longest time, this ambition stayed on hold; publishing four hundred titles a year at Avon, for example, is pretty much a full-time job. Eventually, though, I left the corporate side of publishing behind to sit on the other side of the desk. (More here)
