More Info​

Whitney grew up in College Station, Texas where she was the middle of 5 kids, She is also a twin, older by 5 minutes, and has always enjoyed learning things and reading any sort of book that she could get her hands on. Comics have always been part of Whitney's life but she didn't take an active interest until she was introduced to manga in middle school. 

In college, Whitney was hoodwinked into a career in comics when her twin convinced her that she shouldn't pursue a double major in Creative Writing & Fashion, but should major in Sequential Art which would have both aspects for the price of one. Her twin was, of course, a genius, and Whitney soon discovered comics editorial and her dream job was realized.

As an editor, Whitney's career has focused on kids and YA titles. She loves working on stories with strong characters and hopes to work on a graphic novel of every genre for every type of reader.
