Leah Hultenschmidt started her publishing career at age four
at her local library,where she insisted on "helping organize"
the children’s section…by color.
She's currently the Editorial Director of Grand Central Publishing's
Forever and Forever Yours romance lines. Leah works with a number of
New York Times bestselling authors including Jill Shalvis, Jodi Ellen Malpas,
Meredith Wild, Lauren Dane, Katie MacAlister and Carolyn Brown.
Before joining the Hachette family, she worked at Dorchester Publishing
and Sourcebooks. Leah has a particular fondness for dark TV
(Game of Thrones, X-Files, Blacklist, Dr. Who)
and light ice cream.
In 2011, she was named Editor of the Year by New York City's
The Long Island Romance Writers luncheon was her very first
many moons ago, and Dawn Thompson and Bertrice Small
hold a special place in her heart,
so she's especially thrilled and
honored at the invitation
to be the 2016 keynote speaker.
