Sarah Younger

Nancy Yost Literary Agency

Sarah's been with the Nancy Yost Literary Agency since 2011. She is specifically interested in representing all varieties of Commerical Women's Fiction, Romance, Mysteries, Thrillers, Fantasy, Science Fiction, and select Non-Fiction. Sarah is drawn to layered stories that don't shy away from the realities, and/or often difficulties, of life. She particularly enjoys fiction with cross-generational plotlines, and meaningful pet characters are always a plus. Main attractions in romance submissions are voice and character development. In romances, chemistry is a MUST. Narrative voice should be intelligent and unique. Plots should be well-thought-out and original with touches of humor and whimsy. Sarah cherishes her rural southern roots and particularly enjoys stories with a supporting cast of animal characters: horses, dogs, cats; essentially all pets furry and friendly. You can find her on her personal Twitter page here @seyitsme Please note: Sarah is currently closed to queries. Additionally, she does not represent Poetry, Horror, Middle Grade, or Children's books and she is no longer looking for any new YA projects.
