About Us

In 2003 Tor Teen was launched as an imprint dedicated to publishing quality science fiction, fantasy, and general fiction for young adults. Since then we have published fiction by bestselling and critically acclaimed authors such as Cory Doctorow, Brandon Sanderson, Kendare Blake, David Lubar, Veronica Rossi, Susan Dennard, and Kristen Simmons. 

We have consistently garnered starred reviews from major trade media, year-afteryear we have been selected by educators for numerous reading lists and “best of” lists nationwide, and many of our titles have hit the New York Times bestseller list. 

With nine acquiring editors working to grow our list, we look forward to introducing new voices to the ever-growing and voracious young adult audiences.

In January 2004, I got my dream job as acquiring editor for the Starscape middle grade and Tor Teen YA imprints. I have eclectic tastes, and am open to be queried about everything, not only science fiction and fantasy. Genre is less important than the story and characters. I love books with flawed characters and suspenseful storytelling. For chapter books I am looking for high concepts; for middle grade, action and adventure; and in YA, stories that are thought-provoking and emotionally truthful. Authors I’ve worked with include bestselling and acclaimed authors W. Bruce Cameron, Alan Gratz, Sarah Porter, Brandon Sanderson, Bill Willingham, and Laurence Yep, among others.

Since 2013, I’ve been HEA with Tor/Forge Books where I’m actively acquiring speculative fiction as well as select works of nonfiction for all ages. I love provocative, atmospheric, and emotionally authentic stories and I’m a fan of whatever makes me laugh—crow’s feet for days over here. My current list with Tor Teen is full of incredible talent, including Ann Dávila Cardinal, TJ Klune, Parker Peevyhouse, Lauren Shippen, and Django Wexler.
