Meet The Social Butterfly Family

Jennifer Watson


Marketing Director

Jenn has been a lover of words and a social butterfly since the day she was born. As a Marketing Director and Social Media Manager for a boutique publishing company, she honed her skills and knowledge and decided to do what she is most passionate about: helping authors build their brand and a platform that will see them through their careers. Jenn specializes in Facebook and Bookbub advertising as well as building your readership with cross-promotion and social media marketing.


Working side by side with authors and publishers is her dream job, and doing so with her favorite storytellers is the icing on top of a very delicious cake. Jennifer currently lives in Los Angeles, CA.

Sarah Ferguson

Publicist & Executive Assistant to Jenn Watson

Sarah likes her romance hot and her men dirty. And really, what could be better? Sarah joined Social Butterfly PR in 2016 and quickly climbed the ranks as a blog tour specialist to a junior publicist. As SBPR's secret weapon, she's a jack of all trades, who keeps Jenn organized and on her toes. 


She currently lives in California with her three rambunctious kiddos, two adorable wookies and her very own swoony alpha hero.

Brooke Nowiski

Author Liasion

Brooke's love of reading didn't start until college when she met a group of sparkly vampires, but it has since grown to encompass an overall love of romance.


Brooke joined Social Butterfly in the summer of 2017 after a fortuitous meeting in Kentucky and is excited to be part of the team.


She currently enjoys her own happily ever after in Durham, North Carolina with her bearded husband, two wild boys, and a really terrible cat.

Hilary Suppes

Event Coordinator 

Hilary is outgoing and enthusiastic. She's a social media whiz with a head for business.


A self-professed book babe, she devours books like it's her job - which of course it is. Specializing in blog tour organization, social media management, and marketing, Hilary loves to work alongside authors, giving them the guidance they need while allowing them to do what they love best ... write!


She currently lives in Kansas with her husband and young son and adorable daughter.

Catherine Anderson

Event Coordinator

Catherine is a lover of all things books and has been hooked on romance since the day her grandma sent her a Harlequin Romance subscription in sixth grade. The stories no longer end at the bedroom door and she loves every page she turns.


She has worked as a blogger for the last two years, works as a virtual assistant for authors and slays dragons (teenage daughters) everyday. Mom to a college grad and a high school senior, she always looks for a way to escape. She has found that in books and the authors that write them.


She currently lives in the Central Valley of California,  in a multi-generational home with her grandpa, mom, daughter, 2 dogs and not enough space. She is seeking her HEA, so she may be found swiping left.

Stephanie S. Brown

Marketing Assistant

Stephanie is a book-obsessed sports junkie whose love language is true crime docs, foodie adventures, and Jeni's ice cream. 


She's a D.C native with roots in both Maryland and Minas Gerais, Brazil, so it's no surprise that she has an incurable case of wanderlust, and the need to travel the world. She's a dog mom to her adorable chocolate Havanese floof whose namesake is Ernest Hemmingway, and she has since realized that real life HEAs include canine companionship.


Stephanie runs on tacos, hockey, Investigation Discovery, and Outlander reruns, and is still holding out a hope for her real life Jamie Fraser or Sam Heughan to sweep her off her feet. Or she'll sweep him off of his.

Mary Yeomans

Social Media Specialist

Mary is organized and keeps her team running like clockwork. She's a social media specialist with a love for romance.


A blogger turned promoter, she has experience as a PA for multiple bestselling authors, running street teams as well as running successful tours. Mary loves the romance community and bringing readers their next favorite read.


She currently lives in Canada with her husband and two sons.

Shannon Passmore

Graphic Design

Shannon is a jack of all trades but specializes in graphic design. A long-time blogger and lover of romance, she built her business from the ground up, creating covers and helping her clients take their brands to the next level. She also designs and formats both eBooks and Trade paperbacks.


Shannon currently lives in Texas with her husband, adorable children, and gigantic Great Dane puppy.
