I'm excited to be starting my career with Talcott Notch and am actively extending my client base. I'm looking for adult and YA fantasy, sci-fi, horror, mystery, and mainstream fiction (plus all the sub genres those encompass). I'll also gladly look at non-fiction science and technology. I graduated from Emerson College with a BA in Writing, Literature, and Publishing. I've been an editorial/PR intern for Last Light Studio and an editorial intern for Hanging Loose Press.
A good fantasy or sci-fi has something we haven't seen before, whether a unique world or fantastic creature. More important than that, and true for all fiction, is that there are strong characters and a raison d'etre behind the story. I like books where I really get to know the characters, and books that show the world in a different way. For the old classics I enjoy the likes of Mary Shelley, Dumas, Matthew Lewis, and Lovecraft. My more modern favorites include Beloved, Patricia Highsmith's The Talented Mr. Ripley, A Song of Ice and Fire series, Michael Poore's Up Jumps the Devil, and Jebediah Berry's The Manual of Detection.
