About Us

Publisher, Nancy L. Baumann

Stonebrook Publishing was formed by Nancy L. Baumann of St. Louis, Missouri.  Nancy is an accomplished writer herself, and recognized that the market for carefully crafted biographies was robust, yet authors have difficulty finding a publishing home because larger presses are focused on publishing fiction books, rather than non-fiction.  Stonebrook Publishing is an author-friendly press that believes that the writer should earn an equal share in the success of their book, rather than a nominal fee.

Good stories are all around us, and most of them are true.  Stonebrook Publishing is dedicated to bringing the real, the true, and the compelling life stories to market and applauding the authors that record them. We are “Publishing with a Purpose.”

Stonebrook Publishing Jane Colvin

Jane Colvin, Cover Designer

Once we find those stories, we must dress them up before they go out the door! That’s where our cover designer, Jane Colvin, comes in. Jane  is a graduate from the Missouri State University design and illustration program. Her work has been recognized by the Society of Illustrators and the Dallas Society of Visual Arts, and has been exhibited in New York City and Canada. As an avid reader and bookstore wanderer, she has found a particular love and curiosity for the book designing process. Jane has a unique talent for representing the core essence of our books in her cover designs. She presents several cover concepts for each publication, and they all vary, yet drive at the heart of that story. Our challenge is to choose the one that will best reflect the work within–not an easy task! Without Jane, we would simply have words on pages, and we are grateful for her talent!

    I look forward to the work that you support and the truth of the stories told. Thank you for providing a format for these works of truth to be released, so that we may remember, be enlightened and even exposed to the lives of real people – triumph or tragedy.

    Your name popped up on LinkedIn, dear Nancy.
    I am a professional (fantasy and children’s books) writer.
    I think you know my agent, Albert T. Longden.

    Just want you to know that I think that Storming the Tulips is a very impressive project, especially for me – being a Dutchman!

    Greetings from Holland,
