Meet the Team

She has always been an aggressive and addictive reader. She believes she has the best job in the world. Flavia has three beautiful teenage girls and is a confessed workaholic.
Meire has been a part of the Bookcase team since the company first opened their doors. She holds a master’s degree in business and has a vast range of professional experience, but her real passion has always been books. She is driven to support and nurture both established and new authors and has quickly established herself as a respected agent with editors in many different countries. When she’s not curled up on her couch reading, she is watching cooking shows in hopes of one day making something more edible in her own kitchen to impress her fellow foodies in Lisbon, where she currently lives.
Director of Subsidiary Rights
Maria comes to Bookcase from literary scouting, where she fell in love with the process of matchmaking books with just the right editors and publishers around the world. Her free time is largely spent reading or running—but none of that reading-on-the-treadmill nonsense. Maria is a born New Yorker who currently lives in Astoria, Queens with a sourdough starter named Ryeley.
