“I have been drawn to books for as long as I can remember. The closest thing to magic is words. If you think about it, only twenty-six letters rearranged in multiple ways can open endless doors to lands of love, fantasy, history, other galaxies, dimensions and more. There is so much rearranging these letters can do. Words can make our wounds feel seen; words can let us time travel; words can let us live thousands of different lives within one lifetime. As publishers, we have the power to open these doors for people with the books we put into the world, and what an influential gift that is.”
