About My Business First published at age 15, seeing my name in print was pretty heady stuff. I grew up in a printing business, degreed in journalism, was an early Apple adopter, and owned an ad agency. I've written and published news, sports, features, fiction, and non-fiction. Now it's all about helping writers develop their skills and see their own work in print: life is too short to wait for traditional publishing to acknowledge great writers.

I consult and create communications, marketing strategy, writing/editing, design, and instruction, working with authors from instruction through the finished, in-your-hand book. Contact me at dkcarlen@comcast.net. Deb Carlen
