Editor. Writer. Savior.

I am many things: editor, writer, publishing market expert, salesperson, and project manager. Having worked with almost every publishing house in the US and UK as both editor and former literary agent, I have unique knowledge of the many facets of the industry.

Growing up in a family of visual artists, wordsmiths, and readers, both the detail-oriented and creative sides of my personality flourished. After I earned my MFA in Poetry from Sarah Lawrence College in 2005, I jumped enthusiastically into a career in children's book publishing. Equally at home at a science museum or modern art gallery, in the woods or in the library, at the beach or on the ski slopes, getting cozy at home or exploring new places, reading children’s books with my kids or writing them at my desk—I balance life with work, perseverance, and ink!
