THE TEAM

  1. Eden Plantz
    Eden Plantz
    Executive Editor
    Eden found her love for Christian fiction as a child by raiding her family's well-stocked bookshelves. She has devoted her education and career to learning the ins and outs of writing, publishing, and marketing. Her professional background is in marketing, management and consulting, and fiction editing—including publishing management. She's thrilled to use her knowledge and abilities to the greater success of Anaiah Press authors. Eden is particularly fond of Young Adult fiction with a fresh voice and a purpose. Make her feel like a teenager again. She has a soft spot for historical romance, particularly with cowboys and pirates—but not in the same book! She'd also love to see gripping psychological thrillers, stories that keep her on the edge of her seat.
  2. Kara Leigh Miller
    Kara Leigh Miller
    Editorial Director
    Kara combines her knowledge and prior editing experience with a passion for the written word and a love of YA. She is a multi-genre published author, and an avid reader with eclectic tastes that range from the tame to the taboo. She loves to help her fellow authors recognize their dreams of publication and is very excited about working toward that goal with Anaiah Press.
  3. Laura Maisano
    Laura Maisano
    Senior Editor | Anaiah Surge
    DescriptionLaura is a language nerd, honestly an overall nerd, and loves to immerse herself in strange worlds through fiction. Her interests are geared toward YA/NA fantasy of all kinds and soft sci-fi. Laura is looking for fantasy of any kind (urban, low, high, epic), sci-fi, or dystopia. Give her interesting settings, but more importantly, give her gripping characters and drama. Make her cry, laugh, and invest in well-rounded "real" people as they struggle through adversity, only to come out stronger on the other side. She'd love to see a strong sibling relationship and an emotional quest, or a clean dystopia where the heroes can keep their shirts on.
  4. Julie Wingfield
    Julie Wingfield
    Editor | Anaiah Romance
    Originally from Florida, Julie now makes her home in North Carolina with her husband and three homeschooling children. Despite officially studying Biology and Theatre in school, her ridiculous love of all things words, books, and language has made editing an ideal career. Inspired by a family love of reading, she grew up as a bookworm, and not much has changed. She particularly enjoys the classics, YA fiction, memoirs, and romance. When she's not editing, teaching, or tutoring children, she spends her free moments making things (crocheting, painting, and sewing), gardening, or using any excuse to get outside and enjoy the sunshine. *Please note, Julie Wingfield does not accept direct submissions
