Alex lands book deal


An ExEC has landed a six-figure US publishing deal for a fantasy trilogy. Alexandra Adornetto, (Class of 2009), who wrote her first book at 13, said yesterday that she was thrilled to accomplish her goal of cracking the US market.

Feiwel and Friends, part of the Macmillan US stable, has snapped up her trilogy after a whirlwind sales pitch by Alexandra’s US agent Jill Grinberg.

“I feel incredibly lucky to have been picked up in the US. It was a major goal for me and I’m thrilled that it’s happened,” Adornetto said yesterday, through her Australian publisher HarperCollins.

“My agent, as well as the people at Feiwel and Friends, are such dynamic people. I’m looking forward to working with them and going back to New York.”
