Cat worked in academia and magazine publishing before moving to book publishing. Prior to joining Harlequin, Cat was an editor at Sourcebooks, where she built a diverse list of bestselling, midlist, and debut authors. For Graydon House, Cat acquires commercial and book club fiction, hooky women’s fiction, historical fiction, and thrillers. She is currently looking for strong, evocative stories that stay with the reader long after the last page. At the top of her wish list are diverse contemporaries and historicals by own-voiced authors. Found families and inter-generational immigrant sagas are of particular interest, as are international settings.
