Casey Ryan McIntyre, 38, beloved mother, wife, sister, daughter, niece, and aunt died on November 12th, 2023. As Publisher at Razorbill, an imprint of Penguin Random House, she derived great joy from publishing books for a new generation of readers, and saw herself in every child sprawled out on a couch, rug, or bunk bed engrossed in their latest book obsession.

She was an consummate New Yorker who always knew which bodegas had the best magazine selections, whether to take the B or the Q, what restaurants were best to spot celebrities, and gave every new New Yorker the same advice: make sure you buy a coat that covers your butt, because that’s where you lose a lot of warmth.

Her greatest gifts and joys were her ready and generous wit, her easy laugh, her devotion to her family and friends, and her astonishing determination and grit. She knew the lyrics to every song, recognized every face, and generally started every karaoke session with Bonnie Raitt’s ‘Something to Talk About.’
