About the interviewee: “Grace Fell has loved the book industry since she first submitted a manuscript to Reading Rainbow at age 8. Since then, her journey has looked different – earning a Bachelor’s in English and Creative Writing from the U of A, writing literary fiction, cultivating her Bookstagram – but her roots remain in her love of reading.
Grace started as an intern at BookSparks and is now living her dream to work in the book industry as a publicist. She loves the quaint local scene, mountain sunsets, and monsoons of her home in Tucson, AZ and doesn’t see herself leaving the desert any time soon. Along with her aspiring library of books, she lives with her cat and puppy, her records, and 60+ house plants.” (Bio from the interviewee.)
