Folio Literary Management

With two decades of publishing experience, my work as an agent is informed by my past on the other sides of the editing desk. As an editor, I worked with authors such as David McCullough to shepherd his bestselling 1776 into illustrated form, and Stan Lee to create an interactive experience of his Marvel Universe. And as a ghostwriter and book collaborator, I have nurtured seventeen books through from idea formation to finished manuscript, including Carine McCandless’s The Wild Truth, Diane Tavenner’s Prepared, William Stixrud and Ned Johnson’s The Self-Driven Child, and Kwane Stewart’s What It Takes to Save a Life. My favorite projects challenge us to be better citizens and better humans. Among the deals I’ve recently secured for clients: a journalist writing about the importance of social prescribing for a more robust healthcare system; a victim of the war on drugs writing about discovering Hamlet in solitary confinement, and other books that changed his life; and a therapist and parent writing about how to navigate the emotional challenges of raising a disabled child. I live in Seattle, Washington with my husband and two daughters. I’m a pet-lover, a volunteer with the child welfare nonprofit Strong Families, and an enthusiast of whatever gets me on the water or a mountain.
