Short biography
Renni Browne has been editing fiction and nonfiction for nearly fifty years. Before she became an editor for Scribner’s in 1966, she was a copy editor for Time-Life books, co-author of a novel, and assistant fiction editor for Woman’s Day. When she left Scribner’s she worked part-time for a paperback publisher and a literary agent while reviewing books for Kirkus and Library Journal.

In 1968 she became senior editor at Stein & Day, where she stayed seven years until she became a senior editor at William Morrow. Not allowed to take the time needed to edit the books she acquired, she dropped out of mainstream publishing in 1978 and founded The Editorial Department in 1980.
