    FACTS/TIDBITS
    • http://www.pippinproperties.com/about/
    • Heather Alexander comes from a family where the constant refrain was, “Don’t forget to bring a book!” In college, she hid THE PRINCESS DIARIES between Dickens and Hawthorne. One Children’s Lit class later, and her path in publishing became obvious. Heather landed in editorial at Penguin, where she happily stayed for six years, working with both debut and veteran authors and illustrators. As an agent, she is excited to develop new talent and help shape careers, which is what she loves to do best.
    • She came to Pippin after six years in editorial at Dial.
