LORI GALVIN

Galvin joined Aevitas Creative Management in 2015 after spending years as a book editor at America's Test Kitchen (where she got to taste treats in the test kitchen nearly every day) and Houghton Mifflin (where she worked in  manuscript editing for adult trade and cookbooks). Earlier in her career she took time off from publishing to go to cooking school, work in restaurants, and run a bed-and-breakfast in Maine.

WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR

  • Suspense, mysteries, and thrillers that are notch above, especially ones that subvert tropes or feature an unlikely protagonist
  • Meaty upmarket fiction for the book club crowds a la Such a Fun Age
