Fine Print

The fine print: Before rising quickly through the ranks at Girl Friday—Bethany was Girl Friday's first true employee!—Bethany worked at for a bookseller. A graduate of the University of Washington editing certificate program, she was happy to move from the world of retail distribution to editorial production. Bethany lives in Seattle, where she spends her free time salsa and swing dancing and reading really good YA.
