Jeff O’Neal, Executive Editor & Co-founder, reads books and writes about them. Before he did this, he taught writing and literature at a large East Coast university. He has the great good fortune of living with his favorite person in the world and their two bright, beautiful children in Portland, OR.

Rebecca Joines Schinsky, Executive Director, Product & eCommerce, loves books, bourbon, and the kinds of pop culture you’re supposed to call guilty pleasures. When she’s not at Book Riot, she can be found traveling, cooking, doing yoga, and wrangling the world’s most adorable basset hound in her adopted hometown of Richmond, VA.

Amanda Nelson, Managing Editor, digests books and fried green tomatoes with equal enthusiasm. When she’s not inhaling a book, she’s off having a Narnia-sized adventure somewhere in Richmond, Virginia, with her twin boys (and maybe writing about it in her parenting Tiny Letter, Madame Ovary). Her dream is to be Jean-Luc Picard and/or Doctor-Donna when she grows up, but Ron Swanson’ll do in a pinch.

Kelly Jensen, Associate Editor, blogs at STACKED. She’s a feminist killjoy, pernicious influence, and former librarian who loves black licorice, debating genre, and reading dark YA fiction. It Happens, her book about contemporary realistic YA fiction, is available from VOYA Press.

Rachel Smalter Hall, Associate Editor, may be a professional Book Rioter, but she still hangs out in the public librarian clubhouse. Two of her top three loves include audiobooks and knitting, and her favorite song is Cold Hearted Snake as performed by Alyssa Edwards and Coco Montrese on season 5 of RuPaul’s Drag Race. She co-runs a boozy book club in Lawrence, Kansas, in her spare time.

Swapna Krishna, Comics Editor, is a lifelong reader and pours herself wholeheartedly into the intricacies of geek culture. When she’s not reading, you can find her drinking craft beer, traveling, discussing all things space and NASA in her Tinyletter Give Me Space, or just hanging out with her husband in the burbs of Philly, where she calls home.
