Meghan Harvey

We like to compare Meg, our executive director of independent publishing, to R2-D2 (or should we say BB-8?), the adorable droid with an attachment for every need: whether it’s retooling seemingly impossible schedules, motivating a paralyzed author, or architecting innovative publishing solutions for our clients, Meg has the fix. Her anything-is-possible attitude makes her a crack-shot project manager and visionary thinker; it also supported her two-year sail around the Pacific in a thirty-five-foot sailboat, which, naturally, she restored and helmed herself.
