Bloomsbury Children's Books has named Catherine Onder as its new editorial director, effective September 3. Onder was most recently a senior editor at Disney-Hyperion, where she edited, among other authors, Elizabeth Wein, Ally Carter, and Rachel Hawkins.
"Cat’s publishing vision perfectly dovetails with Bloomsbury’s plans for the future," said Cindy Loh, U.S. publishing director of Bloomsbury Children's. "We have three ambitious new lines launching next year and a fresh, new focus. I can’t wait for Cat to lead our team and grow the list in even more exciting directions. She is savvy, creative, and an honest-to-goodness true book lover through and through."
Onder's appointment is the latest addition to the evolving team at Bloomsbury's children's imprint, which Loh revamped in June.
