Faculty Headshot

Helga Schier, Ph.D., is the  new Editorial Director at Equinox Books, a publisher of genre fiction actively looking for suspense/mystery/thrillers, sci-fi/adventure/fantasy as well as romance.

The Equinox brand stands for Books to Live In. Stories that make you read on beyond bedtime, past due dates and carpool duties. Stories that resonate beyond the last word to echo in your mind and heart and soul. Yes, books are products to sell, but they are something else, too. They are the expression of an author’s creativity and the touchstone for a reader’s imagination. When the two meet, something extraordinary happens. We walk in other people’s shoes and see the world anew.

Come pitch to Helga to see if your manuscript is ready for Equinox.
