We’ve seen some departures around here recently, so it’s a delight for me to announce an arrival: Senior Editor Amy Sullivan.

Swampland regulars are already familiar with Amy from her occasional posts. Now the High Sheriffs are making it an official gig. We are sure you will enjoy sharing her perspectives, her wit and her insights, especially on (but not limited to) the intersection of faith and politics.

What you will not be sharing, however, are the regular shipments of cookies that we get in the Washington Bureau from Amy’s mother. Those we are keeping all to ourselves.

You can learn more about Amy after the jump.

As a senior editor for TIME, Amy Sullivan writes about religion, politics, and culture. She joined TIME in 2007.

Previously, Sullivan served as an editor of The Washington Monthly, where her stories included an investigation into Bob Novak’s role in the Valerie Plame case and an exposé on Democratic political consultants. She has written for a broad range of publications including the Boston Globe, Los Angeles Times, The New Republic, Slate and the Washington Post.

Before embarking on her journalism career, Sullivan served as an aide to U.S. Senator Tom Daschle and as editorial director of the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life. Sullivan is also the author of The Party Faithful: How and Why Democrats Are Closing the God Gap (Scribner, 2008), a book about the Democratic Party and religion. She holds a B.A. from the University of Michigan and an Masters in Theological Studies from Harvard Divinity School. Additionally, she was a doctoral candidate in sociology at Princeton.
