Jennifer Kasius is the editorial director of Running Press. She works in a wide range of subject areas, from lifestyle and cooking to self-help and humor.  Her titles include the New York Times Bestsellers Fabulicious! by Teresa Giudice, Eat More of What You Love by Marlene Koch, and Skinny Bitch by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin. In her spare time she enjoys doing Hot Yoga, listening to 80’s pop, reading 19th-Century novels, and puttering around in the kitchen.  She especially loves making lemon pudding cakes, berry tarts, and oddly, anything with beets and kale.


Kristen Green Wiewora is a senior editor specializing in adult nonfiction, illustrated books, food and beverage, craft, and home and garden. Notable titles include Backwards in High Heels by Tania Kindersley and Sarah Vine, Beard-nominated Come In We're Closed by Christine Carroll and Jody Eddy, Food in Jars and Preserving by the Pint by Marisa McClellan, Les Petits Macarons by Kathryn Gordon and Anne McBride, The Gardener and the Grill by Karen Adler and Judith Fertig, Di Bruno Brothers House of Cheese by Tenaya Darlington, Date Night In by Ashley Rodriguez, Rose Water and Orange Blossoms by Maureen Abood, and many others. A recent move took Kristen and her family to the mid-south, where she continues to acquire and edit remotely. She and her husband have a young daughter and a misanthropic mutt. Photo credit: Amanda Richmond
