Hi! I’m Becky and I am Manchester Lane Publishing. No, we’re not some big company. It’s just me and my laptop. After 15 years of creating educational technology products for a textbook publishing company, I decided to venture out on my own and start this business. I love creating designs and seeing them come to life as printed books. It’s so amazing to design a book that can be a helpful tool in someone’s life. I’ve created approximately 150 books so far and have no plans of slowing down! My personal favorite is the Weekly Meal Planner (which I use religiously).
I was born and raised in Indiana and attended St. Mary-of-the-Woods College where I double-majored in Digital Media Communications and Journalism. After college, my husband and I lived in the Chicago suburbs for about 11 years. After our family was in a car accident, which left me with a broken wrist, my husband and I re-evaluated our priorities and decided to move back to Indiana to be closer to family. We love where we live, the close proximity to family members, and of course the lower property taxes!
You’re still reading? Ok, I guess I’ll go on. I am a wife to a beer and board game connoisseur and Excel aficionado (who taught me to appreciate the power of pivot tables) and a mother to two of the smartest, silliest, and sweetest boys. Other random stuff about me… I’m a huge fan of the Foo Fighters, Ben Folds, and everything Hamilton and I am a big board game nerd, like my husband.
Thanks for taking the time to visit my website and learn about me and this business.
