Jennifer Pooley published an eclectic range of critically acclaimed literary fiction and narrative nonfiction as a Senior Editor with HarperCollins’ imprint William Morrow. Authors with whom she’ s worked include novelists Sarah Hall, Catherine Hanrahan, John Searles, Willy Vlautin, and Michael Zadoorian, as well as historian Daniel James Brown, television correspondent Sara James, and wildlife filmmaker Ginger Mauney. Many of her titles have been named to the American Booksellers Association’ s “ Indie Next List” (www.indiebound.org), and have become favorites for handselling amongst independent booksellers. Her favorite book discovery was meeting debut memoirist Marjorie Hart (who will turn eighty-seven in April) at a small California writers’ conference in 2006, and convincing her Publisher to acquire Hart’ s book Summer at Tiffany on its first twenty pages alone. A 1997 graduate of Colgate University, she still uses what she learned in conference founder Frederick Busch's "Living Writers" course (Fall 1996) every day. Now, as an independent editor, she specializes in developmental editing for full-length manuscripts. She posts often with book industry news and advice on Twitter; you may follow her at @jenniferpooley.
