I am a writer and a literary agent with KT Literary working, eating, and sleeping in New York City. I write speculative YA fiction, and I represent a wide array of YA genres, MG, and some select, speculative adult fiction. You can find my submission guidelines on this site under Submit To Me and on KT Literary’s website.
I’ve been an avid reader and writer for as long as I can remember, completing my first 75 page, handwritten “novel” in the 5th grade (it was really good, according to my teacher, who somehow managed to read the whole thing). I started beta-reading for friends when I was young, and as I got older, that fascination with feedback and helping books realize their potential grew into informed editorial skills. Because of this, I’m a picky reader, writer, and agent – I have a deep, abiding love for a really fantastic sentence and little tolerance for lazy writing.
Before settling in New York, I worked and went to school in Denver, where I obtained my degree in Writing for Film and Television. After stints as a remote intern, a bookseller at the famous Books of Wonder, an intern at Soho Press, a literary assistant at Trident Media Group, and a freelance editor working with well-known authors, I joined KT Literary in 2016.
I have an all-consuming love for Doctor Who, Harry Potter, and anything created by Joss Whedon. I consume coffee like my life depends on it.
