Chris Hernandez joined Razorbill as a senior editor in April 2019, acquiring picture books, middle grade, young adult, and graphic novels. Before coming to Penguin Random House, he was an editor at HarperCollins, where he had the pleasure of working with such stellar creators as Newbery Medalist Katherine Applegate; National Book Award-winner Thanhhà Lai; New York Times bestsellers Pittacus Lore, Lisa McMann, and Tahereh Mafi; SCBWI Golden Kite honoree Cori Doerrfeld; SCBWI Crystal Kite winner Tara Lazar; and critically-acclaimed author Jaye Robin Brown. Chris enjoys stories with heart, multi-layered humor, well-crafted mystery, thrilling adventure, a witty voice, accessible science fiction or fantasy, and a unique twist on something familiar. When he’s not editing children’s books, Chris goes home to write them—whenever his dog and cats give him a moment of peace. Follow him on Twitter: @ChrisMakesBooks.
