Heather Alexander Joins Pippin Properties


Heather AlexanderI was so excited when I read about Heather Alexander becoming an agent at Pippin Properties with Holly McGhee this morning. Over the years that I ran the New Jersey SCBWI, I got to know Heather and she is the whole package. She is as nice as she looks and is very savvy on everything in the children’s publishing industry. Everyone who meets her is impressed and loves her. I know everyone will wish her a long and successful career with Holly and the other agents at Pippin. WONDERFUL NEWS! I know she will make a great agent.


Here is Holly’s Announcement:




Prior to joining Pippin, Heather spent six years in editorial at Dial, an imprint of Penguin Young Readers. The authors she worked with include Batchelder Award winner Anne C. Voorhoeve, Jeanne Ryan, and debut authors Scott McCormick, Kim Reeder, and Jenny Martin. She worked with illustrators Lincoln Agnew, Stephanie Graegin, Henry Cole, Sophie Blackall, and R.H. Lazzell among others.

Heather is looking for new talent from a broad range of children’s book authors and illustrators, from picture books through young adult, including graphic novels. She’s most interested in unique characters, strong voices, and quirky humor.

And of course, don’t forget Elena (Mechlin) Giovinazzo round out the dynamic trio, making Pippin a great place to land.

Talk tomorrow,



  1. Wow! Now THAT’s news! Good luck, Heather! I know you’re a fantastic editor (your critique of my manuscript was the best, most helpful I ever received), so agenting with that experience behind you should be great for you! Well, and anyone you represent 🙂
