Valerie Gray


Valerie Gray- is the Executive Editor for MIRA Books, an imprint of Harlequin, located in Toronto, Canada. Her long and varied career has included work not only in publishing, but in the areas of education, broadcasting and film, all of which have involved telling stories of one sort or another. Since coming to publishing over a dozen years ago, she has assisted the careers of several New York Times bestselling authors and has worked with many others who write in a variety of genres, including commercial literary fiction, historical fiction, romance, and paranormal fiction. Her mantra is: “The reason I come to work every day is to discover a new voice, and to be re-inspired by an established author.”
