We’ve invited the same editors for the second year in a row because, well, they’re amazing! This year, we thought we’d give you a bit deeper look into the lovely editors of our forthcoming all-teen anthology, Join Our Clan.
Three things you probably don’t know about Nicole:
- My senior year in high school, I accidentally auditioned for a play and was given the lead role as Susy in Wait Until Dark. I was terrified and almost turned it down but decided to go for it which turned out to be an amazing experience.
- A few years ago, I was attacked/mugged by a coati while hiking around Iguazu Falls in Brazil. It stole my husband’s birthday malasadas which was super rude.
- I find four-leaf clovers all the time. I always have, ever since I was a little girl. I’ve found hundreds of them over my lifetime and without ever really looking. I’ll just be outside in the yard playing with the kids or going for a hike and I look down and wham—there’s a four-leaf clover looking up at me. I once found 13 in a single day.
Nicole is a YA and Women’s Fiction author, represented by agent Jenny Bent of The Bent Agency. She’s also a fantastic editor for our teen authors, and we’re thrilled to have her as part of this project!
Three things you probably don’t know about Hannah:
1. I can eat 5 pounds of shrimp by myself in less than 5 minutes.
2. In the last six months, I’ve started dabbling with watercolor. I probably haven’t improved much but I love mixing colors and swirling them into something on a page.
3. On my way to a publishing conference in Portland, OR, I got stuck in the Atlanta airport for 20 hours. I slept on the floor and lugged my carryon all over the airport. When I finally made it to Portland, I felt the need to wash my grimy coat. Portland was freezing, so I went sightseeing wearing two black bathrobes from my hotel to keep me warm.
Hannah is the acquisitions editor at Owl Hollow Press. She wields a mighty red pen and is practically giddy every time she gets to work with the wild imaginations of teen authors.
Nicole and Hannah have been hard at work on the teen anthology. They report that readers are in for one epic adventure! We can’t wait to share Join our Clan with you in just a few weeks.
