Al has spent more than ten years in the book industry, championing authors and their work — and can’t get enough of it. She made her publishing debut at the age of six, before self-publishing was a thing. She’s never without a book or four in her bag and is happiest reading literary fiction, especially sprawling stories that cross generations and countries. She lives in Brooklyn.
