About Us

41Kathleen Barnes, CEO of Take Charge Books, comes to the publishing business with more than 35 years of experience as a journalist, as author, co-author and editor of 13 books. Her decision to enter the publishing business was born of her experience with the shortcomings of the current state of affairs in book publishing and her desire to help authors make a good living with their work. We welcome all inquiries from serious authors who have a message that may be too controversial for conventional publishers or who simply don’t meet their unreasonable guidelines. We encourage and nurture new authors. We respect the messages they wish to present and we welcome the dialogue they engender.  For more information, send us a request on our Contact Us page.
