About Sykesville Online

Currently, Sykesville Online is mostly a two person endeavor, and here we are.

Andrea White – Editor and Website Designer

Andrea WhiteSince way back in the nineties, Andrea’s designed and built more than a hundred websites both as a freelancer and lead designer for a successful Internet company. She’s a graphic artist, a top-notch editor, an Internet software expert, one of the world’s best spellers, and a  mom.

Plus she’s quite good with WordPress, dogs, cats, and several other living creatures, including a lizard named Krishna.

She recently copy edited, designed, and helped publish In Carrie’s Footprints – The Long Walk of Warren Dorsey.

Jack White – Writer and Publisher

Jack’s a seasoned (salt, pepper, and oregano) Internet professional and award winning published author who can never find his glasses. (They’re on top of his head.) For the past 20 years he’s worked in marketing and technical communications for various high-tech companies in the Washington DC area. He currently works as the Publications Manager for GSE Systems in Eldersburg.

As a novelist, he was featured in the Washington Post, the Baltimore Sun, and Writers Market. But he doesn’t talk about the novelist thing anymore.

Cool things they’ve done

Jack and Andrea have worked together on several interesting projects over the years, from designing a website for Smithsonian Business Ventures to publishing a novel that won the first Writers Digest National Self-Publishing Award and ended up with Penguin Books, and of course, publishing In Carrie’s Footprints, and running Sykesville Online.
