She assists Emily’s list of New York Times bestselling authors, and her own list includes Chef’s Kiss by TJ Alexander, All The White Spaces by Ally Wilkes, Single and Forced to Mingle by Melissa Croce, and To The Greatest Heights by Vanessa O’Brien. She is always eager for a readerly escape—whether into a fresh setting, a charming romantic meet-cute, a modern Gothic plot, a tense and intricate thriller, or beautiful prose. Raised in Portland, Oregon, Lara is a graduate of the Columbia Publishing Course and Seattle University, where she studied English and Italian.
