The People Behind Three Women Press
Michael Cassidy headed for New York City after college to launch his career in theatrical lighting. As this industry computerized, so did he, building on an early academic interest in automation. In 1988, he left stage lighting to become a full partner at Cassidy Cataloguing Services. As its Computer Specialist and Chief Financial Officer, he taught the company to grow and spread its wings. In 2007, Michael became the senior partner of the real estate holding company, GTWD LLC. His remarkable financial management of these two small businesses made it possible to create Three Women Press LLP.
Joni Lynn Cassidy
Joni Lynn Cassidy earned her Masters Degree in Library Science about the same time Michael headed for the Big City. After 6 years of traditional work in public and membership libraries, she founded Cassidy Cataloguing Services to provide contract cataloging to law and business libraries. Twenty-eight years later, the company is successfully working with publishers and law school libraries throughout the world. From 2003-2010, Joni taught “Cataloging and Technical Services” at five graduate library and information science schools in the New York/New Jersey area. In 2007, Joni became the junior partner of GTWD LLC. When Joni read the manuscript for “The Book Lover” she told Michael it was so beautifully written, it couldn’t be left unpublished. That moment gave birth to Three Women Press LLP.
