ABOUT US

Kim Wyatt is the publisher of the award-winning independent press Bona Fide Books. Prior to this, Kim worked as a developmental editor, journalist, and managing editor of print and online publications. She holds an MFA in creative nonfiction from the University of Alaska, Anchorage and lives in South Lake Tahoe, California, where she runs the Center for Wayward Writers, home to Tahoe Writers Works, the Lake Tahoe Society for Storytelling & Enlightenment, and a letterpress print shop.

Vicky Shea is a freelance book designer and owner of Ponderosa Pine Design in Reno, Nevada. She started her career in graphic design in 1989, graduating with honors from the Art Institute of San Diego (previously The Advertising Arts College). Being in advertising during the 1990s was fun but never Vicky’s passion. In 2000 she became an Art Director at Tehabi Books in San Diego, California. Tehabi packaged books for large publishers around the country and also did custom publishing. She worked briefly for BowTie Press in Irvine, California, in 2003, then she took a job as Art Director at Storey Publishing in North Adams, Massachusetts. After a couple of years at Storey, she returned to Reno to marry her school sweetheart and launch her freelance book design business.

 

Vicky has won several Benjamin Franklin awards. She is a member of PubWest, attending their conference every year since becoming a member. She participates in local AIGA meetings, and she has been a regular attendee of Book Expo America over the last 12 years.
