Originally from Los Angeles, Annie hails from the magazine and newspaper world where she focused on copyediting and developing editorial content. Since joining Folio, she’s worked with a number of bestselling authors. As the Digital Rights Director, Annie works with Folio authors and their agents to bring original and backlist material to the eBook space. In addition, Annie also works on literary and upmarket fiction with commercial appeal as well as select nonfiction in the areas of diet/health/fitness, lifestyle, memoir, pop culture, and humor. She is particularly drawn to: dysfunctional family sagas, braided narratives, strong voices, layered plots, complex characters with deep emotional resonance, and anything with a cultural/multicultural element. She is currently on the lookout for a taut novel in which high concept and voice are woven into a compelling and atmospheric narrative. She is not looking for: romance, political thrillers, science fiction/fantasy, cozy mysteries, children’s/YA.
