I began my career in publishing as an intern at the Wendy Weil Agency, while studying creative writing at Sarah Lawrence College. I worked at the Markson Thoma Agency for nearly 10 years, as the director of foreign rights and an agent. I primarily work with fiction -- adult, middle grade and YA -- and I'm especially interested in dark, literary thrillers and suspense. I'm also interested in narrative non-fiction, memoir, and lifestyle and entertaining projects. I have a strong editorial eye, and I'm on the lookout for writing that immediately draws me in, and stories that stick with me long after I'm finished reading.
