About me

Industry Publishing
Occupation Marketing & Publicity Associate
Location Brooklyn, NY, United States
Introduction I'm an Associate Marketing Manager at Simon & Schuster Children's Books. I love quirky people, swing and blues dancing, pelicans, all things typographic and, most of all, talking about books and publishing.

I started my publishing career as an intern extraordinaire at Scholastic's Arthur A. Levine Books and W. W. Norton, then spent almost two years as an Editorial Assistant in academic publishing. In 2011, I moved into children's publishing as the Assistant Marketing Manager at Bloomsbury & Walker Books for Young Readers. Occasionally I take on clients for freelance editing and manuscript critiques (see below).

In all, I spend a lot of time thinking about books. Since you're here, something tells me you do, too.
Interests publishing, books, young adult novels, YA, picture books, kidlit, children's books, photography, design, editing, reading, writing, writers, fantasy, dystopic fiction, magic realism, diversity, character development, introspection
