❧ Author ~ Erik
Erik is our resident author, and he's written for The Trek, Mountain Biking Magazine, National Geographic Explorer, Canoe and Kayak, and a half-dozen other publications. His passion for education has been honored with the State University of New York's Merit Award for Teaching, awarded three times, and their Outstanding Instructor of the Year Award. He's currently writing his next book inside a heavily-fortified compound in Upstate New York.
❧ Editor ~ Liz
Liz refines our publications and helps the resident author figure out if it should be "who" or "whom." She holds a bachelor's degree in English and a master's degree in teaching English. She's a beginner backpacker, loves reading about plants and animals, and fantasizes about living in a cabin full of books. For now, she does freelance proofreading and editing. If you're a writer who could use her excellent services, send Liz a note via our contact page.
❧ Typesetter ~ Terry
Terry has always loved books: reading them, writing them, browsing through them in a library or bookstore. She was thrilled, therefore, when twenty years ago the opportunity to learn how to make them presented itself. She's done layout for a number of university presses – UPNE, Wesleyan, Kansas, and SUNY among them – as well as a few private clients. If you'd like to discuss how your own book might look, send Terry a note via our contact page.
OOur eight-person proofreading team – (L to R) Revlon, Pony, KGB, Contact, Air Guitar, Seatbelt, Pepperidge Farm, and Little Adam – ensures no grammatical oversights make it to print. Our members have diverse backgrounds, having been involved in the criminal justice, cosmetology, and body art fields for years. We anticipate a short-term team member position opening soon since Seatbelt was recently in a debilitating speed-reading accident.
