My Manuscript Wish List

I was a microbiologist in my pre-publishing life, so I’m always on the hunt for projects that bring new or wild facets of science to light. I’m endlessly fascinated by the human body, especially the heart. My taste in non-fiction extends beyond science books to memoir, lost histories, investigative journalism, epic sports narratives, and gift/lifestyle books. I am particularly interested in projects that move the cultural conversation forward and have a lasting impact on readers. If you’ve written the next Brain on Fire, The Power of Habit, Random Family, The Boys in the Boat, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, Autobiography of an Execution, Tiny Beautiful Things or Young House Love, I want to see it.

On the fiction side, I represent a very select list of upmarket commercial/literary  YA novels (think: The Spectacular Now, The Female of the Species, More Happy Than Not).
