I've had the good fortune to contribute humor & illustration to books published by Penguin-Random House, Pearson/Prentice Hall, Farrar, Straus & Giroux (Macmillan), McGraw-Hill, Wiley & Sons, Harvard Business Review Press, and Pelican.
My book work has ranged from children's, middle grade and adult fiction, to business and educational books, including a few bestsellers.
While many of my clients have been authors working with publishers, I also enjoy working with authors who are approaching agents. Others have also taken their books direct to market with self publishing.
Regardless of your path to getting your book into the hands of your readers, I look forward to discussing your ideas.
