ABOUT MEGAN MANZANO
Megan fell in love with reading and writing from a young age. She grew up to receive a BA in English with a minor in philosophy; eager to stay as close to books as possible. She has and continues to wear many hats in the publishing world: freelance editor, writer, a marketer for trade books in New York City, and a literary agent at D4EO Literary Agency. Top that with blogging and reading, and it’s a miracle her brain hasn’t exploded yet.
