Getting to know Nicole Kasprzak P.G.Putnam’s Son BFYR

Nicole was the editor I was paired up with at my first Rutger’s One-on-One Conference.  Since then she has shared her expertise with the New Jersey Chapter of the SCBWI by joining us at many events in the state.  She also is the editor of the book coming out later next year by Leeza Hernandez, titled DOG GONE.  Leeza is our Art Coordinator in NJ and the Art Director of our Sprouts Magazine, so we are very happy that she made the connection with Nicole.   Its been nice to have been there with Nicole from the beginning of her career.  Here is a little bit of information about Nicole.

Bio:  Authors Nicole has had the privilege of working with include Gennifer Choldenko, Keiko Kasza and Jim Arnosky, but she frequently takes on projects by first-timers. She is currently seeking young, humorous picture books and literary and commercial middle grade and YA. She’s not the biggest fantasy or sci-fi fan and does not take on nonfiction above the picture book level, but is otherwise pretty open. At all reading levels, she looks for strong, unconventional characters, fresh points of view, and writing that knocks her socks off.

So here’s to someone knocking her socks off. 

Good Luck,  Kathy
