Sourcebooks Nonfiction  Simple Truths

WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR...

Nonfiction: For general nonfiction, I am open and interested across categories but specifi cally interested in issue driven works with a narrative slant OR nonfi ction works with gift and packaging opportunities. Anything slightly wonky that might lend itself to calendar or other products. For Simple Truths, I am specifi cally interested in business titles by writers who connect with their audience through the warm aspects of business…team development, leadership, inspiration: more than just the bottom line. I’m particularly looking for business lifestyle; intelligent self-help/inspiration titles with a unique hook and the possibility for playful design elements; gift books that align to elements of positive outlooks, positive growth of individuals (including humor and inspiration).

RIGHT NOW, PLEASE DON'T SEND ME...

Fiction (Adult or Children’s)

SOME FAVORITE BOOKS AND AUTHORS I DIDN'T PUBLISH...

In the world of inspirational nonfiction, fairly obsessed with everything by Brené Brown and Glennon Doyle along with most of the world. In fiction, I love fantasy works, especially in YA from authors such as Laini Taylor and Rin Chupeco, and then I am a voracious romance reader --- I adore Queen Nora (Roberts). And finally, as a mom of two, in the children’s book space we are routine readers of all the Sesame, Little Blue Truck, and Llama Llama titles.

ONE OF THE MORE IMPORTANT THINGS AN EDITOR DOES FOR AN AUTHOR IS...

help you be an advocate for yourself! I want to get your books into the hands of our readers – a goal we should share! Let me know how I can help you reach more readers and I will work to make it happen.

I LOVE MY JOB BECAUSE...

Sourcebooks has changed millions of people’s lives in these broad, beautiful ways and I now get to be a part of that! Plus BOOKS! What could possibly be better?

I KEEP MY READING PILE...

In an ever teetering pile next to my bed, on, under, and in my nightstand. Whenever I read something, it gets the honor of being placed on our ever expanding book shelves.

BOOKSTORES YOU SHOULD VISIT BEFORE YOU DIE...

A Novel Idea in Lincoln, NE is just endlessly charming. And when I was living in DC I became extremely passionate about Kramerbooks & Afterwords Café, which combines two of my favorite things: fine books and fine dining.

WHEN I'M NOT READING, I'LL BE...

in mom mode or if my little monsters are asleep, reading/baking/walking our dogs.

I FOLLOW READING, WRITING, AND PUBLISHING NEWS AT...

Shelf Awareness and Publishers Weekly, occasionally Book Riot for the super trendy. Business trends within Simple Truths I reach for Success Magazine, Business Insider, Innovate, Fortune, and enjoy pursuing LinkedIn and Ted Talks for prevalent materials, speakers, and themes.
