CURRENT STATUS
  • This agent accepts queries
  • MORE INFORMATION

    SPECIAL INTERESTS
    • She loves picture books that are real, storytime-ready stories (no one-joke tales or mood pieces), and has a particular fondness for stellar easy reader manuscripts in the deadpan tradition of Arnold Lobel.
    • For the older set, she is drawn to richly imagined fantasies that depart from old-hat heroic quests (alternate realities, magical realism, and steam-punk are all styles/premises to have recently caught her notice).
    • She has a special interest in dystopian fiction for middle graders and in sprawling, atmospheric tales with Dickensian twists and satisfying puzzles
    DOES NOT REPRESENT
    • Fables and folktales tend not to be for her.
