Kate Meltzer, Editor at Roaring Brook Press/Macmillan

Kate Meltzer is an editor at Roaring Brook Press, a division of Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group. She has worked with bestselling and award-winning authors such as Marie Lu, Melissa de la Cruz, and Matt de la Peña, among others. Kate acquires projects across genres for younger readers of all ages, ranging from original board books to picture books, middle-grade, and YA. She is particularly interested in coming-of-age stories, speculative fiction, immersive fantasy, rom-coms, and ugly-cry love stories. According to IMDb, she’s an actress known for The Last Five Years (though she thinks her cameo as “Handelman Twin #1” barely counts). When she’s not reading or editing, she can be found searching the streets of New York for the perfect croissant.
