Conference faculty profile: Claudia Gabel

Claudia Gabel is a double-threat. She's one of those enviable people in the book world who writes AND edits. In the context of our conference, she'll be wearing her editor's hat, as the executive editor at Katherine Tegen Books, an imprint of HarperCollins. She's worked at HarperCollins, Crown, Random House as well.

Some of her early editorial clients included Derek Jeter, a WWF wrestler, and the rock singer Meatloaf. We're so lucky to have Claudia share her perspective from both sides of the editorial table!

As a writer, Claudia has published a number of young adult novels (the four-book In or Out series; Romeo and Juliet and Vampires; and the upcoming Elusion, co-written with Cheryl Klam). For more about her writing, and her approach to storytelling and finding that perfect submission, please look at her website or read this interview from 2012.
