CURRENT STATUS
  • This agent accepts queries
  • MORE INFORMATION

    SPECIAL INTERESTS
    • She represents young adult novels of all stripes (historical, fantasy, romance, contemporary, literary, humorous), as well as middle grade novels, especially with a humorous voice.
    • She’s also looking for adult historical, fantasy, urban fantasy and science fiction.
    • You'll catch her attention with edgy or funny young adult or middle grade books with a lyrical writing style or zingy tone
    • She's open to everything -- sweet love stories, funny mysteries, scary thrillers, high concept urban fantasy, well-researched historical novels, and mainstream edgy or glam... so long as the voice feels authentic and speaks to social pressures and desires that younger readers can relate to.
    • For mainstream adult novels, she loves character-driven stories with a great hook and beautiful writing -- or anything that makes her laugh.
    DOES NOT REPRESENT
    • She's not the right agent for super dark horror with graphic violence, category romance, memoirs or novels about surviving rape / cancer / child abuse.
    • She also has a tough time getting excited about very hard SF, or fantasy with too many cliche elements (prophesies, portals, hero quests, a magical object that will save the day or destroy the world if it falls into the wrong hands, etc.).
