My Manuscript Wish List

I am currently highly interested in developing my adult commercial fiction list, with a particular eye out for vibrant and fun women’s fiction and romance, mysteries and thrillers featuring characters from underrepresented backgrounds, and unusual upmarket book club fiction. I love romantic comedies, but want the comedy to be as prevalent as the romance.

I represent some pop culture nonfiction, but on a highly selective basis.


Fun facts about me:

I am a very slow runner, but I listen to audiobooks at 2x speed.
