About

My photo

I'm most recently a writer.  In the six plus decades of my life, I've been a wife, mother, grandmother, Jill of all trades though mistress of but a few, and most of the time pretty content with my lot.  As a much younger person, I believed I was called to write, but life and living distracted me for most of those decades.  An unwilling transplant from the South,  twenty years ago I unintentionally landed in the geographical center of the US.  Writing came about in part due to the unwillingness, I expect.  When caring for family, gardening, and renovating a century-old house failed to provide sufficient creative outlets, I turned to the one thing I always intended to do.  Eight titles later, I'm grateful I found myself while Lost in the Plains!

My Team

For any of you Indy authors out there in search of help with proofreading your manuscripts or looking for a cover designer, I thought I'd post here some information about my own "team."

My husband John Welch has over twenty-five years as a proofreader/editor for a legal publishing company.  His fees are reasonable, .0025 per word, and his turnaround time averages less than two weeks for the typical manuscript.  I might add that not only does he correct the usual spelling and punctuation errors, but he's a real stickler for grammatical issues as well.  He uses tracking changes on a regular Word Document, so you can accept or reject any of his recommendations.

You can contact John at jwwelch@cableone.net with any inquiries about his services. 



My covers and other promotional images are designed by my son, Chris Ferris.  He uses a combination of royalty-free stock images purchased by the author, which he then modifies to meet their specifications via Photoshop.
