About me: I’m an agent representing upmarket and accessible fiction and nonfiction for adults and children.
After graduating from Duke University, I spent over a decade as a New York-based book publicist, first working on mysteries and thrillers for Minotaur, then holding managerial and directorial roles at Penguin’s Dutton and Gotham imprints and St. Martin’s Press, promoting debut and established authors in fiction and nonfiction, before spending another decade building my list as an agent, representing #1 bestsellers and award-winners.
My experience building in book promotion serves me well as an agent, which is so important in this rapidly-changing bookselling landscape.
My current focus is on commercial and upmarket adult fiction with an immediate, entertaining voice and nonfiction projects by experts with an accessible tone in areas of business, self-improvement, science and nature.
I frequently do workshops, panels, and one-on-one meetings with authors at conferences, and I’m the co-founder of Littsburgh, a literary community.
