Executive Editor - Merriam-Webster

Before joining the What on Earth Books team, I worked at Penguin Random House in the Penguin Young Readers department. I led the Mad Libs imprint, wrote and edited books for the New York Times bestselling Who Was…? series, and commissioned new titles that received the Pura Belpré Honor and several Junior Library Guild Awards. I’m proud to create books for all readers and help children find strength and unity in diversity. I live in Hudson, NY with my husband, several house plants, and a very old cat named Princeton.
