Alexandra Sehulster (St. Martins Press)

Alexandra started her career at Macmillan Merchandise Sales department, where she learned the beauty of an elevator pitch, how to position a book, and how to best reach the target audience. Now working in editorial, she’s working with many incredible writers, including New York Times bestselling authors Darynda Jones, Kristen Ashley, Tara Sue Me (a.k.a. Tara Thomas), and award-winning author Jody Gehrman, among others.

LOOKING FOR: Buzz-worthy fiction, breakout suspense/mysteries, high-concept women’s fiction/romance, fiction with accessible speculative/paranormal elements, young adult with a commercial hook, historical settings with ordinary people doing extraordinary things, and domestic thrillers with high-stakes. On the non-fiction side, mind/body/spirit works with a light prescriptive element, gripping, “can’t-put-it-down” narrative nonfiction, compelling true crime, plus pop psychology and science books with a fresh slant and approach.
