About the Editor

Editor photo of Anna Parsons

Anna Parsons joined Aladdin in 2018 after completing several internships and an MS in Publishing from New York University. She’s looking for high concept chapter book through upper middle grade fiction, especially featuring underrepresented voices, that is full of magic or adventure: character-driven fantasy and science fiction; suspenseful thrillers, mystery, and light horror; and reimagined fairy tales, folklore, and mythology. In picture books she gravitates toward humor and holiday themes, and in nonfiction she looks for accessible narrative nonfiction or illustrated books about important social topics, uplifting stories, animals, and history.
