Rebecca Frazer

Rebecca Frazer – Editor

Passionate and creative children's books editorial director with over 10 years experience (Hachette UK, PRH, Sourcebooks, and Disney).

Overview



Children's book publishing is not only my livelihood, it's my passion! My experience spans the editorial gamut in format and genre--board books (including novelty), picture books, chapter books, and middle-grade novels. I help authors develop stories to reach their fullest potential while remaining true to their voice and style. I also have an incredible enthusiasm for design and aesthetic and love the process of visual storytelling.

The New York Times best-selling authors I've worked with include Kristi Yamaguchi, Jennifer Fosberry, Ethan Long, Melissa de la Cruz, Jennifer Donnelly, and Sheryl Berk. Several of my titles have been reviewed to great acclaim. And, I have personally developed a series for a fast food franchise that was featured as a giveaway in their kid's meal program as well as displayed in mass retail promotions.

I would be delighted to help bring your board book, picture book, chapter book, or middle-grade novel to the widest possible audience!

Working with Rebecca, I learned so much about the purpose of a pitch. Her market insights, stellar writing skills, and spot-on editing brought my graphic novel pitch to life. I had been stuck in story details and would not have been able to produce such a lovely, engaging query letter without her help. I would work with her again in a heartbeat!

Rebecca has been wonderful to work with and I'm so happy with the improvements to my MS! She has expertise in exactly the genre I am working on so it has been great to have her edit my work. Very happy!
