My Manuscript Wish List®

I joined Janklow & Nesbit Associates in 2014, and have enjoyed the opportunity to work in both the foreign and domestic spheres of the agenting world.

I’m looking for upmarket commercial or literary fiction, and narrative nonfiction. I like feminist themes, historical settings, sharp characters, or something else entirely as long as it makes me want to turn the page. As an expat, I’m interested in international voices and bringing them to a global audience.

I want to read something a little dark, raw, and gritty. I love urban or sparse rural settings. No dystopian worlds, and no multiple POVs unless they really drive the plot, please. Ordinary characters in extraordinary situations, or vice versa!
