“I represent adult, YA and MG, both fiction and nonfiction. In fiction, my taste leans to commercial or commercial/literary stories, most often darker contemporary, thrillers, mysteries, magical realism, horror. I also love pacey rom-coms and women’s fiction with great character development. I’m not the best fit for fantasy (of any type) or younger middle grade and don’t represent picture books or chapter books. In non fiction, I like memoir, narrative nonfiction, works that delve into the human psyche/behavior but am open to considering just about anything – surprise me! That said, I’m not a good fit for anything super political, military, business-oriented, historical or academic.”
