Betsy has nearly 25 years of experience in publishing, having previously worked in the publicity and marketing departments at Penguin Publishing Group, Oxford University Press, and Hachette Book Group.

Betsy graduated with a degree in Political Science and English from Fairfield University. She lives in Connecticut.

When she’s not working on books, she’s reading them. Betsy loves podcasts, all animals, and chocolate chip cookies.

“Betsy DeJesu did amazing work promoting my last book. She worked tirelessly on my behalf, fielding inquiries from a wide range of TV, radio, and print outlets and securing interviews at every place from high-profile programs like NPR’s Fresh Air to small local stations, and everything in between. Reliable and resourceful. I don’t know what I would have done without her.”

—Kevin M. Kruse, professor of history at Princeton University, and the author or co-editor of four books, including the award-winning White Flight and One Nation Under God
