About Corinne Litchfield
Born in the Washington D.C. suburbs, Corinne graduated with honors from Takoma Academy and received a B.A. in English and Communications from George Washington University. Her early career in the D.C. area focused on health communications, with an emphasis in call center training and management. Clients included the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, the National Institutes of Health, and the Food & Drug Administration.
Corinne moved to Southern California in the spring of 2000 and worked for several years as an assistant editor in consumer and B2B magazine publishing for PRIMEDIA and Canon Communications. In 2008 she transitioned into public relations, representing several Web 2.0 clients at The Bohle Company. Her freelance career took off in 2009, working with clients on marketing and PR campaigns, social media management, and content writing.
Corinne relocated to Sacramento in 2010, where she wrote for Sacramento Magazine and other publications on topics such as technology, health and medicine, personality profiles, and regional travel/businesses/events. She also provided marketing, social media, and communications support to individuals, nonprofit organizations, private industry, and small businesses. She has been a frequent speaker at writers' groups on website building, social media, and online platform development.

We attribute our success to her professionalism, creativity, and attention to detail; Corinne's dedication to this project made all the difference.
- Katie McCleary, Executive Director, 916 Ink

Creative ideas and great writing really helped build our audience. Corinne also worked with us on a nonprofit advocacy group devoted to saving open space.

Authors and Writers
Corinne is the consummate professional: punctual, intuitive, trustworthy. She listened carefully to what I needed to accomplish with my website redesign, then provided numerous options on how we might go forward. I’m thrilled with the result. I’m looking forward to working with Corinne again, and am pleased to refer her to other writers looking for help with their own website designs, as well as with social media. – Renée Thompson, author of The Plume Hunter and The Bridge at Valentine (selected as the Woodland Reads 2014 Community Novel)
Corinne has been a valuable resource for me in launching my first novel. I couldn’t have done it without her! She created a new blog book page and Facebook author page for me, linking them across all social media platforms. She’s fast and efficient and explains each step as she works her magic, helping me to be more self-sufficient. I highly recommend her! - Linda Townsdin, author, Focused on Murder, A Spirit Lake Mystery
Corinne has been a great help to me in setting up a Facebook author page and also a Twitter account. When it comes to anything tech I'm the epitome of a slow learner. She was able to help me make sense of things and was patient and clear when I needed the inevitable remedial work. Not only that, she's fun to work with. - Marilyn Reynolds, author, Hamilton High Series
I always thought of Twitter as a “kid” site to be used for nonsensical teen time-waster messages. Corinne showed me how the site could be a powerful asset for an author looking to create a web presence. - Steve Liddick, author, All That Time
Corinne is easy to work with, a clear communicator/explainer/teacher, and a real professional who does what she says she’s going to do when she says she’s going to do it. Those of us who’ve been around for a while know that life in the business world doesn’t always go this way. It’s refreshing to work with someone who understands customer service and the creative process for writers, is a good listener, and is responsive to her client’s needs. Working with Corinne makes good business sense. - Daniel Babka, author, No More Illusions
Imagine trying to provide assistance in developing a complicated, interactive website to a person who could barely cut and paste. That was Corinne's challenge with me. However, she patiently and kindly walked me through the process and there is nobody who could possibly be as happy and pleased as I am with the end product. Having a webpage of my own will help build my author platform and allow an interchange of encouragement and information with my fan base. It has already born fruit and will do even more in the future. It is part of a professional author package to have real estate on the Internet. I could not, nor would not have done it on my own. Thank you, Corinne. - J. "Joy" Dawn King, author, A Father's Sins: A Pride and Prejudice Variation
Trying to understand the intricacies of Facebook, Twitter and websites can be overwhelming. Trying to figure out how social media works is like nailing jello to a tree! But the good thing is you don’t have to do it alone. There is help and her name is Corinne Litchfield. Setting up Facebook was a snap with her guidance. If you are a newbie to social media or just need some expert help Corinne is the natural choice. Her patient and calm manner make her an excellent teacher/coach! - Meera Ekkanath Klein, author, My Mother’s Kitchen: A Novel with Recipes
Corinne, thank you so much for helping me manage the maze that is social media so that I can focus on writing. I can’t tell you how relieved I am to have someone with your expertise handling such an important aspect of my marketing strategy. - Jo Chandler, author, This Side of Forever
Corinne takes a very professional approach, she listened and really understands who I am as an artist and how best to manage my marketing and public relations needs.
