About the Reps

John Muse

John was first hired by the Macmillan/Scribner publishing group in 1985, which was subsequently purchased by Simon & Schuster in late 1994. John has won Simon & Schuster
Sales Awards, has been on the NEIBA Board of Directors as well as an Advisory Council member, has won Sales Rep of the Year Award from NEIBA, and has held multiple positions in the
regional rep association, BPRNE (Book Publisher’s Reps of New England). For more than two years John was a Regional Sales Director for Simon & Schuster, managing over a dozen sales
reps. John is a graduate of the University of Massachusetts and has a Master’s Degree in Sustainability Science. He and his wife Karen have been married for over 40 years and they have
three adult sons. For decades, he was a long-distance runner, but now his recreational exercise is in biking and walking. John mainly reads literary fiction and the occasional non-fiction book
(of any sort), and particularly likes to travel with his wife Karen.

Anne DeCourcey

Anne H. DeCourcey visits Independent Bookstores to present about 2000 HarperCollins Publishers titles over each year. She does not claim to have read them all but knows something about a lot of them. She has connections to the Pioneer Valley through her husband who grew up in Amherst, her father (’57) and brother (’81) who attended Amherst College, and through an obsession with the apple cider doughnuts from Atkins Farm. Anne comes from well-established bookselling roots: her mother owned Pinocchio, a children’s bookstore in Pittsburgh, her grandfather published anatomy textbooks with an imprint of HarperCollins, and Shakespeare “borrowed” passages from Anne’s ancestor Raphael Holinshed’s Chronicles (alas those claims have never borne remunerative fruit)! Anne is a graduate of Oberlin College, denies watching an excess of Scandinavian and British noir productions, and likes quirky unpredictable fiction. She lives outside of Boston.

Emily Crowe

Emily Crowe built a decades-long career in bookselling, including spending 11 years here at The Odyssey Bookshop, before becoming a district sales manager for Penguin Random House in 2022. When she's not selling Knopf Doubleday titles to amazing independent bookstore around New England and upstate New York, she spends much of her free time reading (natch), traveling, enjoying cocktails, trying new foods, and smashing the patriarchy.
