Paige Wright Books was founded by Paige Stover Hague, a Boston-based publisher and book marketer with over twenty years experience in the business. Her career as a writer and publisher was fated from birth because yes, Paige Wright is her given first and middle name.

Her early career was in professional publishing where she worked on both the editorial and marketing sides of the business. In 2000 she established her own consulting firm providing a full range of services to authors and people who are recognized subject-matter experts looking to leverage their knowledge into revenue-generating products. The services offered by the firm run the gamut of author support — manuscript review, revision, production, representation, and publication.
