Joe headshotJoe Monti has always been drawn to the deep pull of story and rich characters. With a preference towards a strong narrative, whether that comes in fantasy or science fiction, commercial or literary, mainstream or genre, speculative fiction or slipstream, urban fantasy, horror or supernatural suspense, it is about those voices that resonate. Before joining Saga Press in 2013, Joe worked in the industry for 18 years as a literary agent, an editor, a buyer, and a sales rep.  His authors have won the National Book Award, the Hugo award, the Nebula award, the World fantasy award, a Michael L. Printz award, and have been New York Times bestsellers.

Navah Wolfe is an editor at Saga Press. She is the co-editor, along with Dominik Parisien, of The Starlit Wood: New Fairy Tales, an anthology of cross-genre fairy tale retellings. She previously spent six years as an editor at Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, where she worked on many bestselling books, including some that have won awards such as the Printz Honor, The Pura Belpré Award, The Pen/Faulkner Award, The Stonewall Award, the Lambda Literary Award, and the Schneider Family Award. She has also spent time working in a children’s bookstore, on a climbing wall, and in a zoo. She lives in Connecticut with her husband, two tiny humans, and one editorial cat.
