I've been in publishing in various roles for 15 years.
As a book marketing consultant, I've put dozens of books on the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and other bestseller lists.
I am now the CEO and Publisher at Story Grid, where we have the only comprehensive story theory developed from the ground up by my partner Shawn Coyne.
I am the author of five books, including the perennial sellers Running Down a Dream and Your First 1000 Copies. My next novel, Failure: A Love Story, is coming Spring 2024.
