About Us

Berwick Court Publishing is a family-run business based in the Chicago area. We publish a variety of books from independent authors.

Matt Balson President

In addition to being the President of Berwick Court, Matt Balson is also the author of Grace Saves the Princess.

Matt graduated from law school at Northwestern University in 2005, and for four years provided legal advice to small companies and investment funds. But in 2009, he became a father and traded in his shirt and tie for a burp cloth. Now he works from home, running a publishing company, designing websites, and brainwashing his two kids into becoming proper Chicago sports fans.

Matt does all of Berwick Court's print layout design and formatting, e-book formatting, account management, and web design. He also does some graphic design work and book editing. He is well-versed in Javascript, PHP, HTML5, AJAX, Drupal, SQL, Ruby/Rails and Adobe's Creative Suite (Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, Acrobat, etc).

Dave Balson Vice President, Principal Editor

Our editor, Dave, was an award-winning journalist and opinions editor in college. He has spent tens of thousands of hours editing everything from columns and articles to a wide variety of books, both novels and non-fiction. His red pen is legendary.

Dave is of the strong contention that editing should be a collaborative effort. Rather than simply returning an edited manuscript from on high, Dave asks authors to work with him over the entire editing process. He is passionate about every project he takes on, honored by each opportunity, and grateful for the lasting friendships that have come from his work with authors.

Dave is also a talented musician who has toured nationally. His recordings can be found almost anywhere you buy or stream music. His long-awaited third album is in its early stages.
