Devon Simpson 

Production Assistant Devon “Gallagher” Simpson says she often finds herself the youngest person in the room. While it’s true that she represents one tail of the GFP age distribution curve, that also means she’s generationally inclined toward every new app and social media platform and keeps the marketing department on the cutting edge. Also a talented graphic designer, Devon helped implement a new author website service as a part of the GFP social media package. She (and we) loved the positive results. It’s expanded our self-publishing offerings and created more value for clients.

FAVORITE COCKTAIL:

French 75.

THE BOOKS YOU RETURN TO AGAIN AND AGAIN:

Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad is the only book I’ve ever re-read. It’s not a beach read by any means—but there are always new layers to discover. Also, it’s well accompanied by Apocalypse Now.

FAVORITE LITERARY CHARACTER:

Ifemelu from Americanah.

THE LITERARY CHARACTER YOU MOST RELATE TO:

Hermione Granger—for showing me how to be smart and sassy at young age. (Or at least feel like it).

Drawing Blood by Molly Crabapple (a gift from Andrea!); Woman Hollering Creek by Sandra Cisneros; White Teeth by Zadie Smith.

FAVORITE TYPE OF BOOKS TO WORK ON:

I’m not attached to a specific genre, but I love working with a book that can teach me new things.
