What I'm Not Looking For:

I'm not the best fit for non fiction, chapter or picture books. Those are other Belcastro agents better suited to those! I'm also not the best person for pro-cop or military story lines. 14/

Adult Thrillers: I recently found a LOVE for this and am craving to read more. I love a dark academia setting, serial killers, stalkers, locked in a room/home. I love not being able to figure something out until the end, give me unexpected twists and turns, keep me guessing! 12/

...And again, blend this in with something else and I am ALL about it. I also have an extreme soft spot for post apocalyptic horror and all things zombie 😍 11/

Adult/YA Horror: It takes a lot to scare me, so hit me with your best shot! I want to be terrified so that I can't sleep. I want sentient settings, scares that mess with your mind, where the lines of reality are blurred...10/

I am focused on representing marginalized voices. I will not ask you to identify unless you feel comfortable doing so, but I am dedicated to uplifiting those voices and want my client list to reflect that.

I'm only looking for Adult, YA and MG. I'll go through each below 3/
