I represent a diverse list of critically acclaimed and internationally bestselling authors with stellar voices, incredible storytelling skills, and fresh narratives to share. I’m looking to further build my list in YA, middle grade, and graphic novels in all genres.
Authors have always been my biggest stars. In fact, one of my most exciting high school moments was when Newsday hired me to review the Ella Enchanted movie and gave me a choice between interviewing Anne Hathaway and Gail Carson Levine–I chose Gail Carson Levine. My job as a literary agent gives me the excuse to professionally fangirl on a daily basis.
I began my publishing career in 2013 as an assistant and foreign rights manager at a New York agency and joined NLA as an agent, still based in New York, in 2017. I am a member of the AALA. For recent sales see Publishers Marketplace.
