Hi, I'm Maggie!

I'm a designer and illustrator currently working as a Senior Designer at Penguin Random House. I can often be found reading, running, or mixing fancy cocktails at home.

I grew up on the southern coast of Maine and studied design and art history at Penn. After graduation, I moved to New York City to work in publishing and completely fell in love with the world of children’s books. I now live in New Jersey with my very handsome husband, Mike, who is a college football coach, and our husky mix, Mozzarella, who is basically a miniature dire wolf.

I’m represented by Jen Rofé of the Andrea Brown Literary Agency.
