Writers House is one of the largest literary agencies in the world and is known for providing an extraordinary amount of individual client attention combined with the benefits of full service foreign rights and subsidiary rights departments.
I first started at Writers House in the West Coast office, where I was lucky to apprentice with Steven Malk and had the opportunity to work with some of the very best authors and artists in the industry. Before taking time off to start a family, I helped launch the careers of several bestselling and award-winning authors. I've now recently re-joined Writers House, dividing my time between London and San Diego. I'm actively building my own list and I'm seeking picture book, middle grade, and young adult manuscripts. I've always been passionate about children's and young adult literature, and, as an agent, I'm eager to help bring fresh voices, characters and stories to a new generation of readers.
I'm particularly drawn to mysteries, fantasy, historical fiction, magical realism, adventure, and books with humor--light or dark or both. Growing up, I loved (and still love) stories by Roald Dahl, Madeleine L'Engle, Philip Pullman, Katherine Paterson, E. L. Konigsburg, Lois Lowry, Beverly Cleary, and Judith Viorst.
If you have a manuscript that you feel would be a good fit for me, please see my submission guidelines below--I'd love to hear from you.
