Biography

Hershey earned a B.A. in English from University of Virginia. It wasn't until after college and a brief job at a ranch in Wyoming that she decided to attend the Radcliffe publishing course and dedicate herself to books professionally. She started off as an assistant editor at Bantam Dell in 1989, and she remembered her first job as a crash course in editing and publishing. In 1999, Hershey left Bantam Dell for Avon Books, which, soon after her arrival, was acquired by HarperCollins and merged with William Morrow. In 2005, after a stint as editorial director at Putnam, Hershey moved back to Random House Publishing Group as editorial director of the Random House imprint. Hershey was appointed editor-in-chief of Ballantine Bantam Dell in 2011. Her current titles are senior v-p, editor-in-chief, associate publisher at Ballantine Bantam Dell.

Hershey remembers coming to books at an early age by "indiscriminately" devouring her mother's Literary Guild titles. She grew up in Lancaster, Penn., but when she was in first grade, the family moved to Brussels. During those five years abroad, Hershey's reading interests continued to expand "because I didn't have a TV set with English shows." It wasn't until after college and a brief job at a ranch in Wyoming that she decided to attend the Radcliffe publishing course and dedicate herself to books professionally.
