My passion as an agent is strategizing profitable long-term careers with my authors. I want clients to love the books they write and make money writing them. Crafting that kind of balance between artistic and commercial success takes communication, teamwork and a focus on "Art. Patience. Strategy." In terms of personality, I tend to be chatty with clients. I aim to set clear expectations and explain publishing processes so authors can focus as much as possible on writing. To that end, I communicate regularly and keep my client list small in order to support each author effectively. I represent authors who write middle grade novels (all sub-genres), young adult novels (all sub-genres), romance novels (all sub-genres) and science fiction/fantasy for the adult market.

How to successfully present your work
Yes! I am actively acquiring! Please contact me through Query Manager. Instructions for submission are on that form - I will be asking for a query letter, the first chapters of your manuscript and your author website, if you have one. I read all queries myself and turn around time is roughly 5-15 days. All queries receive a response. If Query Manager is inaccessible, my email address is also accepting submissions at: firstname.lastname@example.org A book must be 100% complete and in one of the genres I represent (MG, YA, romance, SF/F) - please no picture books, memoir, commercial fiction, mystery or anything self-published. As long as it meets these requirements, bring it on! Always LGBTQIA+ friendly!
