I love reality-based fiction but am also a HUGE horror freak! I am drawn to dystopian/adventure/survival/thriller/mysteries...though I love the character Bridget Jones! (And am an Emily Giffin fan!)
I take great pride in my work and am a big believer in collaboration--let me help you put your best book forward.
- lots! (a 2014 Stonewall & including YALSA +)
- 2019 Edgar Award (best fiction--mystery [or thriller]--awarded by Mystery Writers of America
- My YA, SADIE (with author Courtney Summers) made the NYT Best Seller list
Doing everything I used to do as a hands-on agent but not being an agent!
Signature Literary Agency
I was a literary agent for years before going freelance... My client list was a mix of adult and YA (more YA though, very girl-centric and full of social justice issues)--look it up!
I handled editing all my own books, foreign (when handling my own got to be too much, I found our foreign rights agent --I also found movie/TV agent to handle all film interest), subbing to editors/negotiating contracts etc. I wore all kinds of hats!
One of my YAs won a 2014 Stonewall Award (and I am a big champion of LGBTQIA+ literature). Also, one of my YAs just reached the NYT Best Seller list. (The MC had a stutter--I would love to see more disabled heroes in the world.)
