BEHIND THE SCENES AT TESSERA
Tessera Editorial was started out of a POC mentorship program initiated by Christa Desir, a freelance content and copy editor whose clients include St. Martin’s Press, Sourcebooks Publishing, Kensington Publishing, Macmillan Children’s Publishing, and various self-published indie authors. Prior to becoming a freelancer, Christa worked as an acquiring content editor for Samhain Publishing from 2011-2016. She’s edited a variety of fiction books, including those from award-winning and NYT/USA Today bestselling authors. She’s also the author of several contemporary young adult novels published by Simon & Schuster.
