Feather Flores (she/her) is a California-based editor with a passion for education and children’s literature. She is currently an Editorial Assistant at Chronicle Books, where she develops children’s books and formats and assists two inimitable senior editors. Her previous work experience includes tenure at HarperCollins Children’s Books, Jumpstart Early Literacy Program, The Student Life Newspaper, and two libraries. She has a B.A. in English Literature and Political Theory from Pomona College.

When she isn’t working through (or adding to) her significant to-read pile, Feather can be found outside among the green things: hiking, gardening, walking her heterochromic Australian Shepherd, or singing absentmindedly to herself (and the trees).

All-time favorite books: The Hobbit, J.R.R. Tolkien; The Night Circus, Erin Morgenstern; Uprooted, Naomi Novik; Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse, Kevin Henkes

To catch her in a summoning circle: Rainy ocean mornings, good Spotify playlists, long train rides, constellations on clear nights, stray cats seeking tummy rubs, and blankets. So many blankets.

Fun facts she uses at parties: She is named for Emily Dickinson’s “Hope is the Thing with Feathers,” and when she studied abroad at the University of Cambridge, HRH Prince Edward (politely) refused to shake her hand.
