Who we are: 
Acquisitions Editor: Rachel Sentes has been a writer, bookseller, editor, agent, and publicist for over 30 years. She has worked extensively as a developmental editor and has worked with hundreds of authors through her company Gal-Friday Publicity. She has also been known to hang out with the odd celebrity or two in what she likes to call her second home of Los Angeles. In her spare time she can be found huddled up in a cozy blanket with a cup of tea either watching horror movies, or listening to her dog snore.
