Susan Welte is the Publishing Assistant at BenBella Books, where she assists primarily in strategic packaging and positioning. Susan holds a master’s and bachelor’s degree—both in English literature—from Emporia State University. In 2017, she also obtained a publishing certificate from the Denver Publishing Institute. When not at work, she be found playing with her pet rabbit and hedgehog (an oxymoron, yes), Googling new restaurants to venture out to, or writing her own science fiction. Her favorite novel is Looking for Alaska by John Green, as it might be for many young adult fiction lovers, but Chaucer also holds a special place in her heart.
