I'm also a polymath...
which has always made it hard to quickly summarize what I do.

One of the most courageous things I’ve ever done is to allow others to play voyeur to my most private thoughts by memorializing them in a series of books. I knew that I would be selling myself short if I did not entrust my work to an editor with the integrity, experience, and professionalism to make a good writer a great one—an editor like “the” incomparable Tia Ross.
