Nancy Laties Feresten

Managing Director

Before joining What on Earth Publishing, I led the Children’s Publishing department at National Geographic, and I have also held positions at Scholastic and HarperCollins. I am devoted to engaging children’s natural enthusiasm for fun, surprising information and emotionally compelling true stories and inspiring them to find out more. My books have graced best-seller lists and garnered awards and best-book designations judged by librarians, teachers, parents, and children themselves. I live near Washington, DC, with my photographer husband, two particularly charming cats, and a cacophony of garden birds.
