My name is Deborah Emin and I am a writer and a publisher. I work towards a much more healthy planet through the books I publish and the ways in which we use e-books as a way to help keep the planet a bit less polluted. I also write novels and short stories and am at work presently on a four-part series of stories about a girl and then woman named Scags Morgenstern who grew up in Skokie, IL and then moved to a college in Vermont and then to NYC. Along the way, she learns a great deal about how to be herself and what her place is in the world.
On the publishing side, I consider myself an advocate and go out and find the people I want to publish rather than having them find me. It has been a much better arrangement and has allowed me to work with people whose work I truly admire and to foster their presence in the world and the ideas and/or causes they work for.
I look forward to seeing what this community can also do to forward those environmental and writerly concerns I live with all day long. Thanks for being here.
