Gretchen Durning

Gretchen Durning joined the Razorbill team in 2018, and she edits primarily young adult and middle grade fiction. She’s worked on titles such as The Wide Starlight by Nicole Lesperance, The Girls Are Never Gone by Sarah Glenn Marsh, and the Echoes and Empires duology by Morgan Rhodes. She has also assisted on a number of other projects, including A Sky Beyond the Storm by Sabaa Tahir and Hotel Magnifique by Emily J. Taylor, among others. Gretchen is looking for middle grade and young adult titles, primarily in the fantasy or mystery/thriller genres. She’s especially drawn to stories with a strong hook, an immersive voice, and an escapist plot. When not reading, you can probably find her planning a trip to somewhere new or watching a BBC nature documentary. Follow her on Twitter: @gretchendurning.
