The difference between the almost right word and the right word is really a large matter—’tis the difference between the lightning-bug and the lightning. –Mark Twain

I first agented from 2010-2012, departed for six years for work in the non-profit context, and returned in August 2018. Be sure to learn more about my publishing experience, including former projects sold, and the kinds of books I desire to represent.

Know that I love innovative ideas, beautiful prose, a depth of character and perception, experiences of wonder and childlikeness and curiosity, as well as the pursuit of the good, true, and beautiful. I look especially for books that hit the literary-commercial sweet spot, teach something new and innovative, and breathe intelligence.

Thanks for swinging by.
