Meet Mountains Wanted's CEO

Krista Venero, CEO of Mountains Wanted Indie Author Services and Publishing, first began writing when she was three years old. Poems and songs turned into novels by the time she was in elementary school. Krista is the indie publisher of 10 books, writing romance under the names Phoebe Alexander and K.L. Montgomery. In 2018, after working more than twelve years in higher education, she will pursue her lifelong dream of writing and editing full-time. When she’s not working (which is almost never!), she enjoys spending time with her husband, three sons, and four cats, at her home in coastal Delaware.

Mountains Wanted offers consulting, editing, proofreading, and social media management to indie authors.
