Jennifer Pooley is a Senior Editor with HarperCollins imprint William Morrow where she publishes an eclectic range of critically acclaimed literary
fiction and narrative nonfiction. Authors with whom she works 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-six 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. She posts often with book industry
news and advice on Twitter, follow her at @jenniferpooley.
