I started as an intern for Olswanger Literary’s children’s division, working with author-illustrators. During that time, I worked with Sesame Workshop illustrator Martin Lemelman, Richard Lo, Miri Leshem-Pelly, Jim Carroll, Kunal Kundu, Sherri Mandell, Margaret Peot, and Newbery Honor recipient Vince Vawter.
I currently work as a literary associate for Olswanger Literary, a book reviewer for Publishers Weekly, and as a children's specialist at a bookstore, which means I am never without a book in hand and a never-ending TBR list. With previous reporting experience, I enjoy the collaboration between author and agent and understand how to aid a writer’s creative process. I am a lover of stories but most of all words. With a journalism background, I appreciate a writing style that teeters between the factual and the flowery, particularly something poetic without tortured metaphors.
I am representing domestic fiction, historical fiction, romance, and memoirs, particularly coming-of-age novels. I enjoy fictional narratives that reflect postmodernism—books that are layered, have an awareness of realism, and delight in being self-reflexive.
