Literary Agent | Writer
Thank you for popping in. I am an agent with 3 Seas Literary and represent amazing authors from around the globe in picture books, middle grade, romance/women's fiction, graphic novels, and nonfiction.
Current wishlist. I will only be taking queries from these categories at this time:
Adult — Romance. I never met a trope I didn’t like
Spooky and/or hilarious middle grade
Nonfiction — I’m looking for fun, quirky, fascinating topics with strong commercial appeal and a great platform. Specifically looking for how-to books, antiques, and craft books. Please have a book proposal finished before querying. Need tips on writing an awesome proposal? Check out this bad boy.
Welcome to Laurie Batzel! Her romance Just Smile is the perfect quarantine companion!

Catch (get it? I kill me) the re-release of Sarah Stonich's Fishing! You don't even need a boat—but it can't hurt.
I'm so excited to welcome Barb Curtis to the Sofa! Big things are already afoot, stay tuned!

Erma Bombeck Writers' Workshop
Thirty years ago, I was hip-deep in Scottish mud on an archaeological dig after earning degrees in history and anthropology/archaeology at Oregon State University. Today, I write about ghosts while I help writers move to the next level. I’d love to make some deep connection about the circle of life, but I’m pretty sure Disney would send their goons by the time I finished the first stanza. Nobody wants to see that.
I came from the other side of the literary divide as an author, screenwriter, ghostwriter, and freelance editor and researcher. When I decided to become an agent, I interned with Red Sofa Literary in 2015, was hired as a junior agent in 2016, and promoted to full agent in 2019. In July 2020, I made the move to 3 Seas Literary. I love working with writers at all stages of their careers and will use my experience in authorship to help navigate the sometimes crazy waters of publishing for my clients.
In addition to agenting and speaking at conferences and workshops, I am thrilled to offer A Room with a Boo Haunted Writing Retreats (currently on hold until COVID is under control) leading paranormal investigations, one-on-one consultations, and lots of ghost stories.
