— Citation from the Publishing Triangle Leadership Award

I entered publishing in during the pre-Amazon, typewriter-and- carbon-copy era, imagining I’d stay in the business for only a few years to pay the rent and understand how it all worked. Back then I lived on bad coffee, white-out (I was a terrible typist), free postage stamps (from the slush pile), serendipity and the goodwill of friends and colleagues.

I didn’t plan on falling in love with the industry, but that’s what happened — even as I did my time with contracts, cookbooks and contrarian personalities. Publishing transformed, and many of the old channels closed and new ones opened. Manuscripts flashed up on screens and discovery went digital, but I found that my own appetite and respect for story and information, and this curious way of receiving it — the book — had only increased.

Of the many journeys taken with wonderful books and authors, I can offer only a selection — though each, in its own way, contains a universe of possibilities.
