About Me

All thoughts on this blog are my own!

I graduated in 09 from Hofstra University with a B.A. in English and a concentration in Publishing Studies. I am an agent, the assistant and audio rights manager at Liza Dawson Associates.

I am happily married and live in NJ with my wonderful husband.  When we are not reading, we enjoy playing board games, watching TV, seeing musicals, and spending time with friends! I love to cook, bake, and am always looking for something new to try. I watch a lot of TV.

As an agent, I am looking for  adult, YA, and middle grade fiction and nonfiction

For all ages: Contemporary romance or romantic suspense in all heat levels with career driven woman or athletes (baseball, hockey and soccer), musicians and other public figures, LGBTQ romances. Mysteries and thrillers, especially cozies and amateur sleuths.  Women’s fiction/book club fiction, especially with characters that don’t make the easy choices or multiple POV sibling stories (think the Bravermans of Parenthood, lovable but very flawed). Historical fiction in any era, especially if it is from the perspective we normally don’t hear from. Think the maid or valet instead of the princess and king Science fiction and fantasy with strong YA crossover.

Contemporary young adult and middle grade projects with diverse characters, including but not limited to, characters with disabilities, LGBTQIA, racial diversity, and socioeconomic diversity. Young adult and middle grade science fiction and fantasy. I would love to see a young adult space opera.

In nonfiction I am looking for books about theater, humor, narrative history, current events, pop culture, and memoirs.
