I am represented by Jennifer Laughran of Andrea Brown Lit Agency for all my children's writing.

Below are some pictures from my career with Books Inc., an independent chain in the San Francisco Bay Area, including a crowd shot of the Veronica Roth event I hosted in 2013, my favorite ever YA event, and America's first Drag Queen storytime for kids at a bookstore, with the fabulous Mutha.

I then worked for Chronicle Books as the Children's Marketing Manager.

It is fair to say that Children's Literature had been my life since I graduated from college.

If you need kids' book recommendations, by all means, tweet me at @emteehall, and I'll fill your face with them.

My current role does not focus on children's literature exclusively anymore, but I'm still very much a part of that world.
