Elana Roth is a children’s book editor turned literary agent in New York City.  She works for the Caren Johnson Literary Agency, and specializes in children’s and young adult fiction.

Once upon a time, she fell in love with children’s publishing by chance at Nickelodeon Magazine. Luck struck again when she began working at Parachute Publishing, where she spent nearly 5 years learning the ropes of the book world on series for kids of all ages (and that includes some adults).

Educationally, Elana is a graduate of Barnard College and the Jewish Theological Seminary, where she earned degrees in English literature and Bible (which you could say is really the book that started it all).

When she’s not reading, she’s web designing, or throwing pottery, both of which you can find out about if you dig around a little more.
