I’ve been an avid reader as long as I can remember. My oldest grudge stems from third grade, when the librarian’s daughter beat me out of a first-place gold medal in the summer reading challenge by two books. I was robbed! I have an MFA in Creative Writing from Columbia, spent five years as an editor (mostly at St. Martin’s Press) I joined NLA in September 2017.
As a New York-based agent, I’m eager to build my MG, YA, and Adult lists. When I find a great book I get very invested. I fall in love. The characters begin to feel real and familiar. The story becomes a treasured member of my family (and library). It owns my heart. Give me stories I can become deeply passionate about.
When not curled on my couch reading, I play video games, enjoy too much TV—mostly Sailor Moon and ATLA (Fire Nation!)—eat delicious things, drink champagne, hang out with my very clever partner, and add another “dramatic” color to my lipstick collection.
So, give me stories that will make me geek out or make me have an epic fangirl squee. Or give me something I didn’t know I desperately needed. You can also find details about my recent sales on Publishers Marketplace. Follow me @qnrisawesome.
