From Manuscript to Masterpiece!

My name is Julie Ann Bakker and along with my colleague Teri Lynn Franco, are proud to introduce to you a company that offers professional publishing with a personal touch!

Together we have planted the book publishing seed and with great enthusiasm have launched this fine company to aspiring authors who have dreams and aspirations of turning their manuscripts into masterpieces.

Although based in Sarasota, Florida our authors are coming from all over the globe and embracing this opportunity with both hands and are able to share their untold stories worldwide. It gives us great joy to see our authors faces when we present their books to them for the first time.

The Peppertree Press set out as a goal to give voice to writers by offering a comprehensive array of genres such as: fiction, nonfiction, inspirational, religious, poetry, children’s stories, biography, autobiography, educational titles and cookbooks.

All projects that come to the Peppertree Press are thoroughly screened and evaluated before acceptance and are professional edited and enhanced by our graphic design team. We are proud of our authors, who have incorporated meticulous research and have a passion for writing that shows how they care for their readership.

We welcome you to reach out to us, stop by our office for a chat, take the grand tour of our website and find out how you can turn your creative words into a published book. We are here for you!

Looking forward,


Julie Ann Bakker
