Amy Thrall Flynn has 20 years of experience in children’s book publishing. She started her career as an editor at the former Houghton Mifflin Books for Children in Boston, where she trained under industry legends Walter Lorraine and Anita Silvey.

Amy also worked as an elementary school teacher before she joined Rubin Pfeffer Content in 2019.

She has a passion for the collaborative editorial process and is drawn to beautifully written and compelling stories and topics, with an underlying guiding belief in the power of books to connect, inspire, and affirm the lives of young people.
