“Magical traditions, creatures, and objects abound in this intriguing setting, offering possibilities for sequels... Largely spellbinding.” —Kirkus on RAVENFALL 

 

ABOUT

I am a literary agent and audio rights director at LDLA, who is particularly drawn in by unique voices, strong character development, high-concept plots, and transporting experiences.  I mostly represent commercial fiction, romance, MG, YA, historical fiction, mysteries, thrillers, and narrative nonfiction.  I’m a sucker for anything about cults, witches, jewel heists, archaeology/ancient civilizations, royalty, psychology, or high-stakes revenge.  And I automatically get excited when I see a good smoldering romance, gripping mystery, clever prescriptive nonfiction, or anything set in a bakery (with lots of salivating descriptions!).

I have been passionate about books for as long as I can remember, but I first became interested in agenting after a friend encouraged me to apply for a summer internship at Writers House over our sophomore break.  I commuted back and forth from my home in Connecticut three days a week and knew that this was what I wanted to spend the rest of my life doing...minus the hour-and-a-half train ride.

Now I live in Sunnyside, Queens, and when not immersed in a good book, love shopping at the city's green markets, exploring new neighborhoods, designing gloriously color-coded spreadsheets, tackling DIY apartment decorating, and snuggling with my cats.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

_ 3_edited.png

Please use QueryManager to send a submission to me.  You can read more about my specific interests there, as well.

Your query letter should include:

  • your name

  • your email

  • a short pitch

  • and a short plot summary

Also note previous submission or publishing history, if applicable.  If you are a debut author, do not worry.

After your query letter, paste the first chapter of your manuscript (or the entire proposal if nonfiction) into the body of the email.  I will not respond to queries emailed directly to me and I don't open unrequested attachments.

My (Average) Submission Timeline

Once I receive your query, if I am going to request pages, I usually do so by the 2 month mark.  When I receive a partial, it goes to my TBR pile and I try to respond with feedback in about 3-6 months.
