Junior Agent at Writers House Literary Agency. I believe in books. Always learning. Opinions are my own. She/Her.
Alexandra Levick @AllieLevickI feel really strongly about repping books that deal with teen grief.
I was a teenager when my best friend was murdered. After that happened, it felt like no one knew how to talk to me, or maybe I didn’t know how to talk to them. I’m really not sure. #MSWL (1/?)
Either way, it was incredibly isolating, so I turned to story for comfort and an attempt at understanding.
I want to be able to provide that for other teens—a healthy space to grieve and feel and process what they’re going through. #MSWL (2/2)
I love books that tackle big subjects, but I also really *really* relish the humorous moments in those stories.
Every author I rep has humor in their book, no matter the topic. And I can instantly think of those moments off the top of my head.
Jess Leake @JessLeakeJust saw @AllieLevick mentioned in this article of fantastic PB lit agents, and I can attest to how knowledgable, helpful, and quick to respond she is! writersdigest.com/publishing-ins…
Hey! I’m on a list! How cool.
Please send me your funny AND heartfelt author-illustrated PBs! I’m all about the ~layered~ narrative.
Big thanks to the incredible @JessLeake who totally made my morning with this!
Me again. Reminding you @TheTwilightZone is
Tonight’s high-stakes thriller in an enclosed space (Six Degrees of Freedom) is exactly what I’m looking for. #MSWL
PS-It’s extra fun if you have the context of the old series.
