AKA Literary Management (AKALM)

My Manuscript Wish List®

Dedicated to passionate and effective representation of authors at all stages of the writing journey, including bestselling and debut authors alike, AKA Literary Management maintains a strong presence in traditional publishing and globally focused subsidiary rights opportunities. The agency is honored to focus on the whole enchilada regarding career building and multi-platform opportunities for diverse clients and their endeavors.

After nearly two decades of interaction with authors, musicians, and dignitaries in publishing, international media, and large-scale events, Terrie founded AKA (Also Known As) Literary Management (AKALM) in 2009. As a full member of the Association of American Literary Agents (AALA), she received the Agent of the Year Award in 2021 from American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW), was named a “Top 20 of 2020 Agent” by Writer’s Digest magazine and has sold rights in over forty countries and thirty languages.

Terrie is a member of the Cambridge University Alumni Association, Ringling Bros. Blue Unit, International Publishers Association, and several writing organizations, including American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW), International Thriller Writers (ITW), Romance Writers of America (RWA), Sisters in Crime (SiNC), Sisters in Crime – Colorado (SiNC-CO), and Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI). She serves on the CIPA Education and Literacy Foundation (CIPA ELF) board. She has served as a board member of the Colorado AIDS Project, Project Angel Heart, Colorado Cattlewomen, and Colorado Youth Rodeo Association.

Ask Terrie about her perfect book, and she’ll tell you it positively intrigues, enthralls, and impacts readers, regardless of genre. In Adult Fiction, Terrie likes stories well-suited for book club reading, highlighting memorable characters, universal themes, and discussion-worthy concepts. She represents an eclectic fiction list that spans the realms of crime (mystery, suspense, and thriller), historical, inspirational, romance, and women’s fiction. In nonfiction, Terrie seeks works that will shine long after release and feature an internal message of obtainable and relatable inspiration for readers across the globe, no matter the subject.

On the children’s side, Terrie adores humorous, fun, non-confrontational, read-it-again works of fiction and nonfiction for young audiences, where words seem to dance effortlessly with featured illustrations. For middle grade, Terrie seeks capers and mysteries, adventure, and socially conscious works that encourage curious minds. Terrie’s favorite stories for older MG and YA involve compassionate significance, self-realization, authentic honesty, and the occasional mystery. As with all projects, she gives extra points for works that bring on tears, whether happy or heartrending.

When not reading, Terrie spends countless hours baiting hooks for her pro-fisherman son and at her family’s ranch near Colorado’s White River National Forest. She and her husband are avid ranch, youth, and pro rodeo fans. Finally, she keeps the kettle hot since any time is a good time for a cup of tea and conversation about books.
