Working with books is Jess’s dream job. Ever since she was little, she knew her passion in life was to help authors publish their stories. She graduated University of North Carolina Wilmington with a B.F.A in creative writing and a publishing certificate. Her concentration was in fiction, which helped her develop APG’s imprint Subplot. As Acquisitions Director, she spearheads the imprint while continuing to acquire a variety of excellent stories in many other genres. She loves spending her days reading manuscripts, chatting with authors about their work, and exploring the wonderful Northern Virginia area.
