About Lise Marinelli
Lise Marinelli founded Windy City Publishers in January 2009 after realizing the publishing industry was changing dramatically and the old way of doing business was not meeting the needs of new writers. As a first-time author, she recognized that few opportunities existed for new writers to collaboratively work with a team of publishing and design experts who shared their passion, goals, and willingness to work for the success they desired.
Lise honed her business management and client-service skills as owner of a number of successful business ventures. Her experience as an author keeps her connected to the creative side of the publishing business and her mission for Windy City Publishers is simple – continue to serve the literary community with integrity and honesty, and to give writers and authors their best chance for success.
Lise received her B.S. in Accounting with high honors from the Eli Broad College of Business at Michigan State University.
