Transatlantic Agency

My Manuscript Wish List

As an Assistant Agent, I am actively building my client list by co-representing new clients with Senior Literary Agents at Transatlantic Agency. Writers working with me get the benefit of my passion and ingenuity as well as a Senior Agent’s many years of experience.

I am eager to work with writers of color, including (but not limited to) trans people of color, disabled people of color, religious minorities of color, and queer people of color.

Adult and Young Adult fiction: I like books I can read on a beach vacation: fun commercial fiction, romance that ranges from sweet to steamy, otherworldly fantasy, and sweeping historical fiction. I do not represent mysteries or thrillers.

Middle Grade and younger: I love humour, adventure, and make believe. I also enjoy stories about children navigating their changing relationships with family and friends. I strongly prefer books with at least one human character. I do not represent picture books.

Fun facts about me:

I'm also on the planning committee for The Festival of Literary Diversity!
