Little, Brown Books for Young Readers' fiction editorial director, Jennifer Hunt, is relocating to Los Angeles and expanding the imprint's presence on the West Coast. Hunt, who oversees the middle grade and YA lists at LBYR, will be working out of a home office in L.A. and will be, as the publisher notes, providing "an on-the-ground representative to explore opportunities in the entertainment and digital arenas."

Hunt, who has been at LBYR for 10 years and has worked on such books at Sherman Alexie's NBA-winning The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian and the most recent Printz Award winner, Ship Breaker by Paolo Bacigalupi, will be starting in L.A. on February 7. She will be maintaining East Coast hours and her contact information will remain the same.
