Harper Canada has a new children's executive editor
Congratulations to Hadley Dyer, Harper Canada's new Executive Editor of Children's Books. Dyer, is both a children's editor and the YA author of one of my fav. books, Johnny Kellock Died Today. She's worked as a bookseller, at the Canadian Children's Book Centre, and as a freelance editor at James Lorimer & Company, Groundwood Books. Things are looking up at Harper Canada in the kids and YA departments. A little good news instead of the usual publishing doom and gloom.
I love kids books, and have since the day I discovered them. When I'm not reading them, I'm writing them, or thinking about writing them, or envying the ease with which some writers seem to write them. I have 3 lovely daughters, all of whom have left home, leaving me with more time for writing, and of course procrastinating; something which I am very skilled at, hence this blog.
