My Manuscript Wish List

ABOUT

Originally from Los Angeles, Annie represents a range of fiction and select nonfiction. As a former journalist, she possesses a keen editorial eye which she brings to her approach to agenting, taking an active role in helping clients reach their full potential and guiding them through every stage of their writing career from ideation to publication and beyond. Since joining Folio Literary Management she’s had the pleasure of working with both debut and seasoned authors alike.

WHAT I’M LOOKING FOR

I am actively seeking new clients and gravitate toward literary fiction featuring diverse characters and authentic voices; rich historical fiction where the setting takes on a life of its own; visceral literary thrillers with dark psychological grit; and nuanced speculative/science-fiction that explores what it means to be human in the age of technology. I love to champion underrepresented voices and am particularly drawn to complex characters with emotional resonance, deftly braided narratives, and captivating layered plots. Above all, I’m always on the hunt for gifted storytelling that stretches its genre to new heights. When it comes to nonfiction, I’m open to fresh, smart, well-branded nonfiction in the areas of pop science, pop culture, diet, health, fitness, food, lifestyle, and humor.

If you have an established platform/brand that you’d like to expand with a book or two, or your manuscript can make me hold my breath, make my heart soar, or entice me deep into a well-built world in the space of a few sentences, then please read my submission guidelines–I would love to hear from you.
