Featured Speakers for

the 2018 Agents & Editors Conference

We'll kick off our day on Saturday with a general session (9:00am to 10:00am) open to all conference registrants and featuring a conversation with Beth deGuzman, Vice President of Grand Central Publishing, who will be in conversation with WLT Executive Director Becka Oliver.



Beth deGuzman, Vice President, Grand Central Publishing

Beth deGuzman is VP, Digital and Paperback Publisher at Grand Central Publishing, where she oversees eBook publications and trade paperback and mass market programs, and acquires fiction and nonfiction. She works with James Patterson and Michael Connelly; sits in meetings with David Baldacci, Sandra Brown, Harlan Coben, and Nicholas Sparks; and is proud to be attending this conference with her author and fellow Texan Melissa Radke.  Because she is a graduate of UT Austin, you should expect to hear her yell "Hook 'em, Horns!" all weekend long. Also, her favorite things begin with the letters B and C: the Beatles and barbeque, Cheetos and crossword puzzles.
