Julie Romeis Sanders fell in love with reading while hiding under the covers with a book and a flashlight. She rediscovered the wonders of children’s books in high school, while working at an independent book and toy store. By 2001, Julie found her dream job helping to launch the U.S. division of Bloomsbury Children’s Books. There she edited books for all ages and discovered authors such as Printz Honoree Rick Yancey and author of a Caldecott Honor, Aaron Reynolds. In 2007 she took a turn for the west coast and joined Chronicle Books to grow their fledgling fiction program, create fabulous gift products, and develop unforgettable picture books such as Caldecott Honor Book Flora and the Flamingo by Molly Idle. Julie has also spent many years guiding future editors at the Columbia Publishing Course and encouraging aspiring writers at SCBWI conferences around the world. Now, as a freelance editor, Julie continues to pursue her passion for working with authors, illustrators, agents, and publishers on various editorial and consulting projects. She is also delighted to have returned to her book-selling roots as a children’s specialist at independent bookseller Books Inc.
