I’ve worked in book publishing for 15 years, and always on the agenting side of things. I’ve been lucky enough to work with Diablo Cody, writer of the Oscar-award winning Screenplay Juno and memoir Candy Girl, Alexandra Robbins, The New York Times bestselling author of Pledged, The Overachievers, Quarterlife Crisis and Secrets of the Tomb, American Idol judge Randy Jackson, Kirk Read author of How I Learned to Snap and Bobby Henderson, author of Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. I’ve represented all kinds of fiction, journalism, how-to books, popular culture titles – and my personal favorite, the memoir. I love memoirs, and I’ll read one on almost any topic. My all time favorite is Manhattan, When I Was Young by Mary Cantwell. I read it shortly after I moved to New York from the Midwest and I re-read it almost every year. It’s that good – but it also reminds me that we all have a story to tell, whether we’ve survived something truly dramatic or have led a relatively quiet and peaceful existence.
I’m the author of Writing & Selling Your Memoir (Writer’s Digest Books).
