Since 1992, Pat has been the managing editor of Mānoa: A Pacific Journal of International Writing, the literary journal of the University of Hawai‘i Press. Before that, she was a technical editor for the Water Resources Research Center, a multidisciplinary research unit on UH’s Mānoa campus. In 2017, she served as a member of an NEA review panel in literature.
Selected publications: wrote Stray, a book of poetry (El León Literary Arts and Mānoa Books, 2006); did interior design and typesetting for An American Girl in the Hawaiian Islands and Backstage in a Bureaucracy; coedited and produced the 2017 edition of Ms. Aligned: Women Writing About Men. Her most recent authored book is Bedeviled: A Novella (Mānoa Books / El León Literary Arts, 2016).
Erin has expertise in producing technical illustrations in Adobe InDesign, QuarkXPress, and Adobe Illustrator. Logos designed by Pat were produced by Erin in Adobe Illustrator. A state agency’s organizational chart was given to Peak Services in rough form and redesigned and produced in QuarkXPress by Erin. Because QuarkXPress and Adobe InDesign are competing applications, we offer typesetting and layout services in both.
Erin also offers advice and help with computer hardware and software; he has experience in both Windows and Mac OS.
