Blue Ridge Literary Agency
My Manuscript Wish List
My favorite genres are cozy mysteries with quirky but believable characters, fun romances with strong leads who are willing to work through real issues, dystopian and post-apocalyptic YA novels, well-written fantasy, and relic or artifact action/adventure. I’m looking for memorable characters and stories that drag me into the emotion and action and keep me turning pages until the wee hours.
I have a background as an acquiring editor for a mid-sized publishing house; an award-winning reporter and managing editor for a newspaper; a professional freelance editor, mentor, and writing coach; and a traditionally published author.
For MG, I’m looking for all sub-genres.
For adults, I’m looking for mystery, romance, and action/adventure.
For a more detailed listing of what I am looking for, please see my submissions page on our agency website.
Fun facts about me:
I live on the largest lake in South Carolina with four rescue dogs and the love of my life. In the rare spare moments when I am not working, I write my own novels, bead, cross-stitch and create cross-stitch patterns, crochet, and play on the lake with my husband and dogs.
