CookeMcDermid Literary Management
My Manuscript Wish List®
I am a literary agent and the Rights Manager at CookeMcDermid. In addition to representing the agency’s clients outside of North America, I am looking to build a list of clients from marginalized backgrounds working in commercial/genre fiction and non-fiction. In fiction, I am drawn to character-driven stories, featuring complicated and/or morally grey protagonists. In non-fiction, I am keenly interested in well-researched but accessible works exploring systemic issues and how they play out in our day-to-day lives.
I am primarily interested in works for adults and older YA. I am not interested in picture books or middle grade.
Prior to joining the publishing industry, I worked in the non-profit, arts, and culture sectors. Outside of my role at the agency, I am also one of the co-founders of BIPOC of Publishing in Canada and a board member at Paprika Theatre Festival.
Fun facts about me:
I am a reformed (. . . kinda) theatre kid and I love theatre and the performing arts! Some favourites include: SIX the musical; & Juliet; The Phantom of the Opera; Hamilton.
