Holly McGhee is the creative power behind Pippin Properties, Inc. The literary agency, started in 1998 by Holly, represents some of the finest authors and illustrators in the field of children’s literature, including Kate DiCamillo, David Small, Jandy Nelson, Doreen Cronin, Harry Bliss, Kathi Appelt, Jon Agee, Renata Liwska, and Peter H. Reynolds. Holly has established an integrated agency dedicated to representing books that stand the test of time and licensing those works for film, television, and merchandise as well. Prior to launching Pippen, Holly worked on the publishing side of children’s books as a secretary, an advertising-and-promotion manager, a book sales rep (for one month), and an executive editor and associate publisher at HarperCollins, where she spent seven happy years before venturing out on her own.
