Sterling Lord Literistic

My Manuscript Wish List

Before joining Sterling Lord Literistic in 2017, Sarah worked as an editor for fifteen years, holding roles at G.P. Putnam Son’s, Hyperion Books, HarperCollins Children’s Books, and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Books for Young Readers. Over the course of her career, Sarah has had the pleasure of editing many talented authors including the likes of: Jodi Lynn Anderson, Kasie West, Claudia Gray, Michael Buckley, Eileen Cook, Erin Summerill, Lauren Groff, Emily Bain Murphy, and Megan Shepherd. Sarah graduated with a B.A. in English from the University of Virginia.

Sarah is particularly drawn to middle grade fantasy and contemporary with heart, humor, adventure, and magic. In the young adult space, she has an affinity for southern voices, high-concept plots, big hooks, strong romance, sci-fi/fantasy, historical, mysteries & thrillers, magical realism, and emotionally compelling contemporary. In the adult space, she is looking for sci-fi/fantasy, twisty thrillers, speculative fiction, and historical.

Some things I’m especially interested in at the moment: unique fantasy with a truly original magic system, middle grade fantasy like BLACKTHORN KEY and A TANGLE OF KNOTS. If you have the next UPROOTED or THE RAVEN BOYS, I’m your girl.
