Editor's Profile

Patrick Price

P Price2

Patrick Price knows how to steer big ideas into even bigger books. With ten years' experience at Simon & Schuster, the former senior editor acquired and edited such #1 New York Times bestselling titles as He's Just Not That Into You and sTori Telling - Tori Spelling's memoir, along with "new mommy" favorite, Sippy Cups Are Not for Chardonnay and Tim Gunn's bestseller, Gunn's Golden Rules.

Combined, his titles have spent more than 100 weeks on the NYT list. Most recently, as Editorial Director at Simon & Schuster's YA imprint Simon Pulse, he worked with such notable authors as Sarah Ockler, Tom Leveen, and S.E. Green (Killer Instinct).

Patrick's experience is eclectic and unabashedly commercial, including both young adult and adult fiction as well as nonfiction in the categories of memoir, relationships, modern parenting, and whatever else he finds refreshingly irresistible.

Authors have described Patrick’s editorial style as "a writer's dream," "uncannily perceptive," and a "razor-sharp scalpel of just what readers want to read." Whether working with a first-time author or a seasoned pro, he gives each project his thoughtful, undivided attention.
