HOLLY WEST is a Senior Editor at Feiwel & Friends, an imprint of Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group. She has worked with authors such as Mo O’Hara (My Big Fat Zombie Goldfish); M.R. Fournet (Brick Dust and Bones); Tricia Levenseller (Daughter of the Pirate King); Manka Kasha (Small Knight and the Anxiety Monster); and Aiden Thomas (Cemetery Boys). She edits books for kids and teens of all ages, with a focus on fantasy, sci-fi and other genre elements, along with a few (mostly science, tech and video game related) non-fiction titles. In general, she’s drawn to books that feature smart kids and which combine magic, technology, and whimsy with snark and heart. She would almost always rather laugh than cry, and likes to describe her job as being a professional fangirl: it allows her to look through all the pop culture shared with her, find stories to fall deeply in love with, nitpick over them obsessively until they are as close to perfect as possible, and then shove them at other people with great enthusiasm.
