She joined the company in 2015 as part of the Simon & Schuster Associates Program, and has worked with debut, celebrity, and New York Times bestselling authors writing in English and Spanish across fiction and nonfiction genres. Melanie is passionate about championing underrepresented voices. She loves stories that highlight the magical in the seemingly mundane or explore new perspectives of the “known” in extraordinary scenarios, and is drawn to multilayered, voicey characters and beautiful, immersive writing with a commercial hook. Melanie holds a bachelor’s degree in creative writing from the University of Puerto Rico, Río Piedras, and a master’s degree in publishing from NYU.
