About Our Guest

Jesse Bickford is the senior producer and a director for Blackstone Publishing, and has been with the company since 2008, after stumbling upon audiobooks rather unexpectedly. A Southern California native she’s been in Oregon since 2004 and loves living in the Pacific Northwest. A lifelong book dragon, Jesse couldn’t ask for a better career than in audiobooks. Her favorite genres are short story anthologies, fantasy novels, middle grade titles, queer literature, and books with a little extra *ahem* spice in them. When not audiobooking she can be found hanging out with her family and their two unruly yet adorable dogs, usually with a book in one hand and a glass of wine in the other.
