Sarah Bedingfield 20

An agent with Levine Greenberg Rostan Literary Agency (see other agents at this agency)


Sarah has been an agent with Levine Greenberg Rostan since 2016. She represents high-concept, genre-busting literary novels, domestic and psychological suspense, upmarket, big-hearted family epics, historical fiction, and international, diverse voices. She reads most types of literary and upmarket commercial fiction, especially novels that show powerful imagination, compulsive plotting and unique points of view that say something important or new. Family dramas, cross-genre narratives with light speculative elements, darkly Gothic stories that may lead to nightmares and twisty psychological suspense are her favorite kinds of stories, particularly those set in interesting places. She loves books that highlight nature or the environment in some manner. A southerner at heart, she can’t help but gravitate toward books set in the south, but she’s a die-hard for any world immersive enough to make her miss her stop on the train or cry in public. Hailing from North Carolina, Sarah graduated from UNC Chapel Hill with a double major in Psychology and English. She spent her first three years in New York teaching 11th grade English in the Bronx. She began her publishing career almost ten years ago, initially in editorial at Crown and Hogarth. It’s impossible to list all, but a few of her favorite authors are Shirley Jackson, Gabriel García Márquez, Gillian Flynn, Stephen King, Haruki Murakami, Sarah Waters, Victor Hugo and Madeleine L’Engle.
