Outreach Blog of the Garden Writers 2014 Pittsburgh Symposium

Why did you become a publisher in the garden industry?

“That was accidental. I used to write about women and politics. When I moved to Florida and went to write for the Orlando Sun, they offered me freelance work as a travel or garden writer. I have always gardened even as a child. I can’t remember not gardening.”

Are you prepared to handle a crush of garden book proposals?

“I already get that.”

Betty is publisher of B. B. Mackey Books. She is also a writer, photographer, lecturer, and editor.
