An agent with Folio Literary Management (see other agents at this agency).

About

Writers are astounding. Only 26 letters at your disposal, yet you shift and rearrange them into an endless stream of invention to conjure new worlds again and again. I’ve been chasing the endless ordering of those 26 letters most of my life, first as a reader, then as a writer, editor and agent. Before I joined Folio, I worked at Algonquin Books of Chapel Hill, where I moved from assistant editor to project editor, working on both fiction and nonfiction and in both editorial and marketing. As an assistant editor, I worked on a range of titles, including B.A. Shapiro’s The Muralist, Stephanie Knipper’s The Peculiar Miracles of Antoinette Martin, Nina de Gramont’s The Last September, Heidi Pitlor’s The Daylight Marriage, and Larry Olmsted’s Real Food/Fake Food. As project editor I worked on Elaine Khosrova’s Butter and C. Morgan Babst’s The Floating World. I understand how to shape a story before it goes out into the world, and how to best position it once it’s there. I’ve also been a freelance writer and editor, and a manuscript reader (yep, that’s a thing, and it’s awesome—but, alas, not lucrative). Before any of that I was an award-winning writer and editor with Atlanta Magazine for six years, covering, among other things, books, the arts, and sports narratives. I’m a graduate of Wake Forest University and have a master’s degree in journalism from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
