My Manuscript Wish List

Laura is primarily interested in literary fiction, high-end commercial fiction, literature in translation, and select young adult fiction with crossover appeal. In nonfiction, she is looking for narrative nonfiction, current affairs/journalism, and memoir. She is particularly drawn to international stories and settings. She is not seeking science fiction, fantasy, or romance.

Susanna Lea Associates, which has offices in New York, London, and Paris, represents a range of fiction and nonfiction, both commercial and literary. Laura joined SLA in 2009 and is based in New York. Prior to SLA, Laura worked as a literary scout for Maria B. Campbell Associates. She is a member of the Women’s Media Group.
