Rebecca Joines Schinsky, Director of Content and Product Strategy, loves books, bourbon, and the kinds of pop culture you’re supposed to call guilty pleasures. When she’s not at Book Riot, Rebecca works on the Bookrageous podcast, wrangles the world’s most adorable basset hound, and sits on the advisory board of James River Writers in her adopted hometown of Richmond, VA.

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