I am committed to representing authors and work from all walks of life. I’m particularly passionate about representing the voices of the marginalized and disenfranchised and, in me, those voices will find an unwavering advocate.
I am most interested in representing female and female-identifying voices. I am drawn to the unique pressures and circumstances girls and women face and there is no female character too “unlikable” to pique my interest. I firmly believe female characters deserve to be featured with the same depth and range as their male counterparts.
