* Dallas has done it again, telling three different stories with her trademark homespun style. Strong female characters and intriguing storytelling draw the reader into this two-hanky read full of love and loss. BOOKLIST STARRED REVIEW

Founded in 1971 by Jane Jordan Browne, Browne & Miller Literary Associates specializes in full-service representation of a select clientele. I have been owner and president of the agency since 2003.

I'm an intrepid reader, my taste is very eclectic, and I look for exceptional writing and very fine storytelling. My roster includes several New York Times bestselling authors and numerous prize- and award-winning writers. I am always interested in promising new voices and those kinds of books that draw me in, fully capture my attention, and then hold it until the very last page. If my heart races a little bit along the way, all the better.

For 2018, I am seeking:
* Literary/commercial fiction/women's fiction
* Substantive women’s historical fiction, often with romantic overtones (I love OUTLANDER)
* Character-driven crime novels and psychological thrillers including highly original dark family dramas and domestic suspense stories
* Gothic/Gothic-styled fiction,contemporary or historical. I want to find the next V.C. Andrews!
* Historical and Contemporary Romance in most subgenres
* Christian/inspirational fiction by established authors

I am especially on the lookout for:
* A Southern-set, dark and atmospheric and highly original police procedural/crime series, maybe NOLA-set?
* Voice-driven contemporary women's fiction that's snarky, clever, confessional and feels very modern
* Literary-leaning thrillers with decidedly Hitchcock-ian bents
* A love story featuring SPACE, as in the lovers are separated by the distance of space, are on a space station, or are going on a space exploration mission
* Scottish Highland or Regency- and/or Georgian-set historical romances, remarkably well-written and with interesting
twists
* An expertly-crafted, Chicago-set historical thriller reminiscent of Caleb Carr's THE ALIENIST
* Anything about Oona O'Neill Chaplin
* I'll always be open to the next The Thorn Birds since I love a great epic romance.
* A golf-themed mystery! What Dick Francis did for horse racing, some talented and clever links lover needs to do for GOLF! An ideal protagonist might be a golf pro...

On the non-fiction side, I am actively seeking:
* Modern mind/body/spirit projects that marry an urban sensibility with practical simplicity.
* Elegantly written narrative non-fiction by nationally-recognized authors. Forgotten stories, lost histories, slices of
(dark) Americana, in the vein of the late Lee Sandlin or Erik Larson.
* I love Old Hollywood and anything about American family dynasties, especially high society behaving badly.
* I'm a dog lover (and dog owner), so I'd be open to a great dog memoir, especially if it starred a Scottish Terrier.

Sorry, but Browne & Miller is no longer accepting submissions of (Adult) Memoirs or of Young Adult fiction; no children's books of any kind; and I do not represent horror, sci fi/fantasy, poetry, or screenplays.
