Daniele Hunter

McIntosh & Otis

Daniele Hunter started at McIntosh and Otis as an intern in 2016 and became the children’s department assistant in 2017. She has a B.A. with honors in English, concentrating in Poetry and Literary Criticism, from Drew University, and she’s always been hopelessly in love with young adult books. Before M&O, Daniele held various odd jobs in the publishing industry, from proofreading to teaching and working on literary journals. She's head-over-heels for children's books with beautiful, literary writing and dark, serious topics, especially MG and YA. Her focus is on championing underrepresented and marginalized voices in young people's literature. In her spare time, she reads way too quickly, sings opera, and puts her ambidexterity to good use as a knitter. She lives in New Jersey with her spouse and their cat.
