I recently moved to Long Island, after living in NYC most of my life. I hope to one day move onto the main land of the USA! That’s another story though. I’m a mother to two girls (they’re adults, but they’ll always be my girls), grandmother to two rough and tumble boys (eight and 11) and a 7 month old baby boy, and wife. Oh, and grandmother to a pitch black cockerspaniel and a hyper-crazy, bronco-jumping bernedoodle. 🙂
Okay, back to more pertinent information about me.
I’m the founder and manager of Writers on the Move (http://writersonthemove.com), a marketing group of writers and authors, and my blog Karen Cioffi Writing and Marketing was honored as Writer’s Digest Website of the Week, June 25, 2012.
Along with this honor, Brian A. Klems, online editor for Writer’s Digest, added a wonderful comment: “This site from Karen Cioffi should stand as a model for other freelance writers.”
As a professional writer and author, I have years of experience ghostwriting (70+ books), rewriting (30+ books), and editing children’s books (lots and lots and lots). I’m also a lead editor with 4RV Publishing and staff writer for ReadingVine (an online reading comprehension learning center).
I have two children’s books published:
Walking Through Walls (a children’s middle-grade fantasy adventure, set in 16th century China – Children’s Literary Classics 2012 Silver Award)
Day’s End Lullaby (children’s rhyming bedtime story, with original lullaby and sheet music)
And, there’s more to come. I’ll list the titles as they’re published.
I’ve helped writers get contracts, self-publish, and one client has gotten interest in a sponsorship with MADD for a children’s picture book I’ve rewritten.
