She has also edited New York Times bestselling author Alyssa Cole, Reese’s Book Club recipient Yamile Saied Méndez, and Barnes & Noble bookseller favorite Amy Spalding. A New York City native from the Bronx, Norma studied English literature at the Macaulay Honors College at The City College of New York and is a graduate of the Publishing Certificate Program at City College.
