“Throughout her time in the children’s book industry she worked with such
acclaimed authors and illustrators as Patricia Reilly Giff, Tony Johnston, Seymour Chwast, Sarah Dessen, Mary Pope Osborne, and Jane Yolen.
“Among her many accomplishments at Viking, Brodie conceived and
edited the long-running (and still in-print) Cam Jansen series by David A. Adler, and during her tenure at Roaring Brook she launched the
careers of 21 debut authors and illustrators.”
