Claire Dorsett, Assistant Editor at Roaring Brook Press, Macmillan
Claire's love of literature led her to pursue a BA in English from Cornell University, where she was involved with campus publications The Daily Sun and Rainy Day literary magazine. She then completed the six-week intensive Columbia Publishing Course before finding a home at Roaring Brook Press, an imprint of Macmillan Children's Publishing Group, assisting Vice President and Publisher Simon Boughton. She has worked on a range of projects during her time at Roaring Brook, including Lane Smith's middle-grade debut Return to Augie Hobble, Steve Sheinkin's National Book Award finalist Most Dangerous: Daniel Ellsberg and the Secret History of the Vietnam War, and picture books The Skunk and Ned the Knitting Pirate. Among other projects, she is currently working on a series of books for emerging readers in partnership with the Scripps National Spelling Bee, as well as a picture book about fishing by Tommy Greenwald and David McPhail.
