AUDIBLE EDITOR

Abby West

Abby is a true pop culture junkie, whose decades as a journalist have given her a love of stories that explore and celebrate underrepresented communities and memoirs that go way beyond surface deep (TBH: notables who can do their words justice are the holy grail), with a healthy dose of out-there fantasy and sci-fi. And the fact that her listening library grows daily simply fills her with delight.
