"The word “exotic” can take on various different meanings and connotations, depending on how it is used. It can serve as an adjective or a noun, to describe a commodity, a person, or even a human activity. No matter its usage, however, the underlying perception is that is refers to something foreign or unknown, a function which can vary greatly in unison with other words, from enriching the luxury status of commodities, to fully sexualizing a literary work of psychology and anthropology, such as the Kamasutra." - See more at: http://blog.oup.com/2016/09/exotic-oxford-comment/#sthash.FNirrdrm.u4r4dkP6.dpuf

Story
Tagline
Just a gal in the book industry. I love books!
Introduction
My name is Raquel and ever since I was a little girl I've loved books. I received my Bachelors of Arts degree in English (summa cum laude!) from Northeastern University. I interned at Northeastern University Press for a couple semesters and I decided then I wanted to pursue publishing. Right out of college I began working for a children's book publisher and have been there ever since. I also pursued my Masters of Arts degree in Writing, Literature and Publishing at Emerson College. I love the children's book industry but in my free time I enjoy reading other kinds of books.
