Sandra Choron attended Lehman College where she received a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1971.
Sandra Choron, soon after graduation from college, began working as an editor at Hawthorn Books for eight years and then Dell Publishing for two years, where she was senior editor of trade paperbacks, before founding her own literary agency/book packaging firm, March Tenth, Inc., in 1980. She represented more than one hundred authors in a variety of subject areas, including reference, fiction, humor, and health. Specializing in books on popular culture and rock music eventually led to a position as art director for Bruce Springsteen, whose record albums and merchandise she designed from 1985 until 2003.
Choron is the author of a number of books, including National Lampoon's Class Reunion (1982), Elvis: The Last Word (1991), 1001 Tips for Caregivers (with Sasha Carr, 2002), Planet Dog (with Harry Choron, 2005) and Planet Cat (with Harry Choron, 2007), both of which were optioned for TV treatment by Animal Planet, as well as Planet Wedding (with Harry Choron, 2010). She is a founding editor of the music and politics monthly newsletter Rock & Rap Confidential.
With her husband, Harry Choron, she wrote The Book of Lists for Kids and The Book of Lists for Teens. The books provide trivia, history, lifestyle suggestions, and other focused lists covering topics of interest to young people and teenagers. In The Book of Lists for Kids, readers can find more than three hundred lists of statistics and facts covering problems and issues sometimes faced in childhood and adolescence, including such topics as ten things to do if you are afraid of the dark, six ways kids can help to change the world, and live ways to stop a nosebleed. The book also includes information on bike safety, lists of books banned from public schools, kids' legal rights, and information on how kids can fight censorship. There are also lists of topics intended for fun, including how to tell what is in a box of chocolates, listings of the twenty-five best United States amusement parks, seven ways to ward off Dracula films featuring monster vegetables, and ten little-known things about Superman.
Similarly, The Book of Lists for Teens offers a captivating collection of tips, advice, opinions, and more, both silly and serious intended for teenagers and young adults. The lists are grouped in chapters covering overall topics such as school, relationships, entertainment, facts, the world at large, and personal issues. There are lists of suggestions for solving problems that many teenagers face. Working on The Book of Lists for Kids and The Book of Lists for Teens, Sandra was able to combine so many of the skills she acquired in her publishing career, including research and consulting, plus it gave her a chance to organize the hundreds of ideas she had for these books.
Sandra was a guest speaker at various publishing conferences and has taught Book Publishing on the college level at Lehman College in New York. Choron also taught a college-level class in book production at the same college.

"No one in my family was surprised that books became my passion in life; 'book' was the first word I ever uttered, and as a child, I had no better friends than the many volumes I was encouraged to take out of the library each week."
"I think list-making can be a valuable tool for young readers (and older ones, too!) in that the process gives us a chance to catalog our thoughts, define subjects, and keep track of a world that's changing faster than ever."
Sandra Choron is a member of the American Book Producers Association and American Society of Journalists and Authors.
Quotes from others about the person
"She represented me and my coauthor about 10 years ago. She was enthusiastic about our book and guided us through preparing a proposal, then circulated it to publishers. We quickly had one offer, but she was convinced we could do better. She was right, and Simon & Schuster picked up "Stacking the Deck" for its Fireside label. Her energy, dedication, and professionalism made it all possible."
Sandra Choron married Harry Choron in 1972. The marriage produced one child, Casey.
