I'm passionate about great storytelling and have ten years of experience editing YA novels, including instant bestseller, THEY WISH THEY WERE US by Cosmopolitan Op-ed Editor Jessica Goodman, A TASTE FOR LOVE by Jennifer Yen, the acclaimed WAR GIRLS by Tochi Onyebuchi, THE SECOND LIFE OF AVA RIVERS, which received three starred reviews, THE WIDE STARLIGHT by Nicole Lesperance, SCREEN QUEENS by Lori Goldstein, THE HAUNTED by Danielle Vega, and many more.
When I'm not reading, writing, or escaping into nature, I can be found wandering around a bookstore, running in the park, or trying out a new recipe in my tiny Brooklyn kitchen.
