Kandace Coston

Kandace Coston grew up in the Bronx, New York, where she spent her weekends at the public library reading stories and writing her own. After graduating from Barnard College, Columbia University, she won an internship grant from We Need Diverse Books which helped her break into the children’s book publishing industry. As an editor at Lee & Low Books, Kandace enjoys working with new authors and illustrators and helping their projects grow into published picture books. Professionally and personally, Kandace loves strong female protagonists as well as any story that can make her laugh!
