O U R

S T O R Y

We created Seven Sisters Publishing out of necessity. There is a noticeable lack of diversity within young adult novels, leaving a large group of teens and young adults underrepresented and unable to find books they can relate to. We feel there are so many stories to be told and many authors whose voices still need to be heard.

 

We wanted to help foster those voices.

MARTINA MCATEE
Chief Executive Officer
Co-Owner

Martina created Seven Sisters after her experience publishing her own books exposed a clear lack of variety in the YA publishing world. Together with Melissa and Cassandra, she decided to pursue her own publishing venture where she could find authors to help bring those missing works to life.

 

When she's not in the writing cave or running 7S, you can find her reading or binge watching Netflix with her teen daughters and their cats.

CASSANDRA MCGILVRAY
Chief Financial Officer
Co-Owner

Cassandra joins Seven Sisters with twenty years of bookkeeping and business management experience. She's very passionate, detail oriented, and even a little O.C.D. at times, making her the perfect person to keep track of all our checks and balances.

 

When she's not crunching numbers,

she enjoys crafting, party planning, organizing, and spending time with her husband and their beautiful toddler son.
