Alex Arnold is an editor at Katherine Tegen Books, acquiring middle grade and YA. She works with critically acclaimed authors like Kali Wallace, Brittany Cavallaro, Corey Ann Haydu, and Kristin Bailey. She is always on the lookout for diverse, authentic voices, characters that could step off the page, and atmospheric settings that make her feel transported. she would especially love to find a middle grade novel about a refugee experience; a YA with a unique structure or narrative device; a feminist fairytale or fable retelling in MG or YA; and an #ownvoices chapter book or young middle grade series. Particular interests and soft spots include baseball, dogs, dark family magic, wry humor, and strong female friendship.
