Senior VP and Publisher
I am the Publisher of Feiwel and Friends and Square Fish and Senior Vice-President of Macmillan. Before joining the company in 2006, I was Publisher at Scholastic for some twenty-something years where one of my proudest accomplishments was creating The Baby-Sitters Club with Ann Martin. My full bio, which is too long winded to go into here, is on the Feiwel and Friends Facebook page. The reason for Swoon Reads is because reading romance makes me happy. And to be able to escape into a world—real or imagined—where the connection between two people is all encompassing is a trip I will take anytime.
