Nikki Garcia is an editor at Little, Brown Books for Young Readers where she works on everything from picture books through YA. During her time at LBYR, she has had the honor of working with talented creators such as Sophie Blackall, Jennifer Torres, Monica Brown, Laini Taylor, and more. While open to projects for all ages, she is particularly interested in picture books that pack an emotional punch, and voice-driven literary or commercial middle grade and YA. She is not the best match for science fiction. Born and raised in New York City, Nikki graduated from St. John’s University and Harvard University, and thankfully didn’t have to travel very far to make her dreams come true.
