Jeffrey West

Writer and Editor



I am an Assistant Editor at Scholastic Press, working on a range of middle grade and young adult novels. Since joining Scholastic in 2014, I have edited exciting projects from debut authors and accomplished writers alike, including The Love and Lies of Rukhsana Ali by Sabina Khan, I Wish You All the Best by Mason Deaver, I Love You So Mochi by Sarah Kuhn, and Ghost Squad by Claribel Ortega. Previous projects include: Pixel Raiders by Stephanie Bendixsen and Steven O’Donnell, illustrated by Chris Kennett; and Baker Street Academy, written and illustrated by Sam Hearn.

Prior to working at Scholastic, I was a children’s book specialist at McNally Jackson Books in NYC. Originally from the south, I now live in Brooklyn with my twin brother and two adorable cats.
