Literary agent at The Bent Agency. I tweet about books and desserts in equal measure. My dog is the best office assistant ever. Vote!
My picture book #MSWL changed recently: I’m looking for author-illustrators (instead of text only projects) but I will make an exception for contests (like DVPit!), critiques, and conferences.

And I have BIG plans for next year: signing more clients, selling big books, diving deeper into foreign/film/audio, attending more conferences, and finding a way to mentor or offer a paid internship.
Speaking of new clients, my #MSWL has been updated! Yes, I’m looking for graphic novels now! Plus, a continued call for commercial YA, literary MG, and PB author-illustrators. manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/laur…
