Katy is CEO and founder of Diamond Publishing Company. Being left-brained and right-brained makes for a perfect combination. Her left brain takes care of the business side for authors making sure their books are produced in a timely and professional manner, and her right-brain allows her artistic side to stretch into creating striking and compelling book covers and marketing ideas for maximum effect. She has been in the publishing industry for over ten years.
Katy previously owned and operated her own dance school (before she had children of her own!), was a professional choreographer, and was also a professional floral designer, working individually with clients to create custom arrangements. A high school classmate, whose daughter was a dance student of Katy's, dubbed her the dancing florist, so it only made sense to carry that tradition on and Katy is now called The Dancing Publisher.
