Foreign Rights & Agent at Jill Grinberg Literary. History dork. Gritty fanatic. Licorice connoisseur. She/her. Writer rep’d by @patricianels

Historical with fabulist elements. Think Alice Hoffman — literary prose, a sharply defined setting, just a hint of magic. #MSWL

editor @stmartinspress , @minotaurbooks , @wednesdaybooks . Books and giant pieces of cake rule my life. She/her. Opinions my own.

-locked room mysteries/thrillers with a big cast of characters

- I like historical-set fiction but only if it is a genre I love (horror, rom com, etc) set in a different time period #MSWL 4/7

10 Tips

speaking editorially for a moment: this is one of the reasons that my general/historical fiction #MSWL includes "immigration stories that are not from Ellis Island."

ditto for Jewish stories--tell me a story that isn't about Ellis or the Holocaust (or the US, for that matter)

Really loved Beheld, a story of the women in 1620's Plymouth. I adore historical fiction that goes back to old stories and retells them and I'd love to see more in my inbox! #MSWL

I loved everything about Sylvie's Love on @PrimeVideo: the 50s Harlem setting, the music scene, the love story. It's made me eager to find more historical romance/women's fiction featuring BIPOC characters. #MSWL

For nonfiction: self-help, lifestyle, gardening, decor etc. Historical, especially women or little-known events. No memoirs at this time.
