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:

  • Dark MG (Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children)
  • Horror (I'm a sucker for a great ghost story)
  • Humor and humorous memoir (Jenny Lawson and Mindy Kaling)
  • New Age with a strong platform
  • History (Colonial US and British History) --fiction and nonfiction. Adult or MG
  • Quirky nonfiction -- adult and MG/YA
I will regretfully need to pass on YA, romance (for now), and fantasy. Projects with a strong humor vibe will always get a second look. 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. Not sure of the steps to build a great book proposal?

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?

I've had my fingers in paranormal pies for over 20 years, and I'm now working with Park Slope Productions in helping to develop a great new paranormal television program. More Paranormal Witness than Ghost Adventures in style, I'm looking for the spooky people to share stories of their experiences. Do you feel that you're haunted? Let's chat!
