Wapner’s role: Editor

As a publisher and packager, I've had the good fortune of being bailed out by Kenneth Wapner

on multiple book projects. I’m fully confident in delegating all manner of creative and

project management to him. He's brilliant, tremendously effective editor, and, perhaps most

importantly, he cares deeply about every book he works on.

As an author, KW was my lifeline. He gave me immeasurable help with all aspects of bringing

War of the Whales to life. I couldn’t have done it without him. I highly recommend him to anyone

looking for trustworthy, inspiring guidance and unflagging support.
