bev katz rosenbaum hey there!

Right, so I'm an award-winning publishing veteran who's worked as an in-house editor of both commercial fiction (at Harlequin) and literary fiction (at McGraw-Hill Ryerson), and who currently toils as a popular freelance developmental fiction editor. And after a long hiatus, I'm pleased as punch to announce I'm back to writing middle-grade and young adult fiction! In September, Orca Books released my new middle-grade novel Who is Tanksy? (An anonymous, anti-authoritarian graffiti artist! A middle school election not unlike a certain American one! You'll laugh! You'll cry! If you'd like to book me for a low-cost, virtual workshop on writing process and/or writing fiction inspired by real events, please email me at .) When I'm not editing or writing, I'm guzzling coffee, eating chocolate, catching up on friends' books, exploring my city (Toronto), dancing (all kinds) and hiking. (Not the extreme kind. The mildly challenging and occasionally inspirational kind.)
