Yellow Pear Press was founded by Lisa McGuinness, a twenty-year veteran of the publishing industry. Lisa worked in the editorial, sales, and production divisions during her tenure at Chronicle Books. In addition, as a writer, developmental editor, and project manager, she has worked on books for Running Press, Barefoot Books, and Accord Publishing, as well as custom publications for Starbucks, Gap, the Exploratorium, Cooper’s Hawk Winery and Nordstrom.

Lisa is also the co-author of several children’s books including the New York Times bestseller Bee & Me and Baby Turtle’s Tale—both animated picture books written under the pen name Elle J. McGuinness. She is the co-author (along with Leslie Jonath) of The Dictionary of Extraordinary Ordinary Animals. In addition, she is the author of the novel Catarina’s Ring, and the inspirational gift book Caffeinated Ideas Journal. For information please visit lisamcguinnesswrites.com.
