STMlogoMy publishing company ScienceThrillers Media has released Kindle ebook versions of Katie McKissick/Beatrice the Biologist’s picture book for kids LITTLE CELLS, and a collection of her science-themed cartoons AMOEBA HUGS. Both are available for purchase, or are free for Kindle Unlimited subscribers. Gina DeMarco’s brilliant and funny satire THE NEANDERTHAL’S AUNT, a kind of Bridget Jones’ Diary for women in science, is also in print from STM. Also: ORBITAL PATHS by Richard Meyer, a poetry collection, and EATING BULL by Carrie Rubin, a psychological/medical thriller about obesity.





As of July 1, 2015, I will serve as Treasurer of Northern California Publishers and Authors, a local affiliate of the national professional organization for small publishers Independent Book Publishers Association.

Publishing University 2015


I was thrilled to attend Independent Book Publishers’ Association 2015 “Publishing University” in Austin, TX in early April, on a scholarship awarded to a member of my local affiliate chapter. I learned a great deal about the publishing business that will make my publishing company ScienceThrillers Media more successful.
