I am open to queries!

As an associate agent with the Harvey Klinger Literary Agency, I am actively building my list in middle grade, YA, and adult fiction categories.

I am looking for character and voice-driven books that I connect with on an emotional level. I want a book that makes me laugh or cry and extra points for both! I’m especially open to BIPOC and LGBTQ+ stories and voices in the mentioned categories.

What I'm looking for:

In  middle grade (MG) fiction I’d like to see:

  • Contemporary stories that deal with tough and realistic issues kids are facing today. 
  • Stories that feature humor and adventure. 
  • Paranormal, fantasy (except high fantasy), mystery, horror, and graphic novels are also of special interest. 

In YA fiction I’d like to see:

  • Feel-good contemporary and contemporary romance.
  • Paranormals with strong world building and an interesting twist in vamps, wolves, or witches.
  • Romantic Comedy.
  • Mystery series featuring a YA detective.
  • Sci-Fi, fantasy (except high fantasy), horror, and graphic novels are also of special interest.

In Adult fiction I’d like to see:

  • Romance with a fresh twist on trope-driven plots include best friend’s little sister/brother, enemies to lovers, friends to lover, etc. I like sweet to spicy.
  • A strong sports romance (would love a heroine athlete!) or a sexy cowboy.
  • Dark paranormal romances with gritty vamps, wolves, or witches. Think outside the box for world building.
  • Romantic Comedy with snarky protagonists and hilarious plot lines.
  • Romantic Suspense with equal parts steamy as action.
  • Mysteries, thrillers, and suspense that keep me up all night.
  • Sci-Fi and fantasy with romance threads are also welcome.  

Please note that I am NOT currently accepting:

 
  • Picture books
  • Chapter books
  • Westerns
  • Erotica
  • Inspirational
  • Poetry
  • Short stories
  • Nonfiction
  • Memoir
