About Feet Wet Writing

Our Story

We believe the best writing comes from life experiences—those in which we get our “feet wet”—thus, Feet Wet Writing was formed. Jeff draws upon careers in law enforcement and conservation to weave together thrilling mysteries set in the Northwoods of Wisconsin. Victoria, his partner-in-crime, supports independent authors and writes non-fiction.

In 2016 we began Feet Wet Writing with the idea that we would both write. Victoria had published a book eight years earlier and was ready to do another. Jeff had just finished his first manuscript, and we were figuring out his publishing road. 

In 2019 when the first book in Jeff’s Northern Lakes Mystery series was published we were working with his publisher’s Ingram-approved distributor. After six months in this system, the distributor was not really paying attention, and Jeff’s books kept going out of stock. We realized as an indie author, after printing costs, shipping to us, shipping to the distributor, shipping to stores, we needed to find a different, more efficient, more sustainable way. 

So, with a degree in graphic design and a background in printing in Victoria's back pocket, the micropublishing, sales, distribution, and marketing aspects of Feet Wet Writing were developed.
