New agent website!

It's time to branch out and focus on my clients with a brand spanking new website! Please check there for updated representative categories, meet my authors, and see where I'm headed for conferences, online workshops, and more.


PLEASE NOTE: I WILL NOT OPEN UNREQUESTED ATTACHMENTS nor click a link to see your website and/or sample pages in a query. Standard procedure, my friends. Emails with unrequested attachments will be deleted without response. 
It's been nearly two months of agenting at Red Sofa Literary and I'm already off to a grand start. Two authors, Catherine Curzon of A Covent Garden Gilflurt's Guide to Life with her fantastic historical romance, The Mistress of Blackstairs, and Jonathan Ashley's amazing Book of Spacetronauts (PB) have me open to categories I didn't know I needed until I saw them in my inbox. Thus, I have adapted my representative categories to reflect romance and picture books added to the Ottoman Empire and replacing memoir submissions.

I'd like to stress that these authors are the exception. Please don't send sports queries or screenplays. I love them to pieces but there are agents better suited to their unique needs. 

So, what's hopping in my inbox lately? A lot of fantastic horror, MG, and picture books. While I'd love to cuddle the heck out of all of them and call them my own, I'd be ultimately unable to give each of my authors the special attention they need so I'm restraining myself.

I'd love to see more humor, quirky nonfiction (all ages), and I have to admit I'm longing for another historical romance right about now. And did I mention my rather unconventional love for the Headless Horseman? I love a Hessian with an attitude.

Carried away? I wish. Here headless, headless, headless...

My Pivot in Publishing

I've taken my relationship with publishing to the next level and joined Red Sofa Literary as an associate agent. I will be representing books in the following categories:

  • Spooky MG 
  • New Age with a strong platform
  • History (Colonial US and British History) --fiction and nonfiction. Adult or MG
  • Quirky nonfiction -- adult and MG/YA
  • Romance -- historical
  • Picture books - quirky nonfiction
I will regretfully need to pass on YA, memoir, and fantasy. Please submit your query to stacey[at] If I think we're a great fit, I'll ask for the first three chapters or a finished book proposal. Please do not send unrequested attachments, chapters, or a synopsis as this is not agency policy. 

Not sure of the steps to build a great book proposal? Get help here

I am also working closely with Boundary Stone Films and Park Slope Productions, keeping my eyes peeled for great new projects. 

I will continue to write as I can't keep my fingers out of the publishing pie for too long. What's first? Ouija or a biography of Agatha Christie?
