Associate Agent email@example.com
I joined Talcott Notch in July of 2011, directly following a six-month-long internship with Sourcebooks, Inc., where I assisted the editors with their romance, women’s fiction, and Jane Austen-related titles. My fabulous fiction clients have written works of young adult, middle grade, romance, and women’s fiction. I also represent two incredibly delicious cookbooks. I hope to continue procuring works in all of the aforementioned areas (especially YA/MG), and I would also love to add some memoir (especially food memoir) with a unique voice, 20th century American historical fiction, mainstream fiction that incorporates fairytale/magical elements, and non-fiction pertaining to the performing arts or food/cooking. In general, I look for books with incredible writing and real, loveable characters that make me laugh and/or break my heart.
