GET TO KNOW ME
Born and raised in Eastern Washington, I'm currently a literary agent at the Belcastro Agency. Reading and writing have been my passion for as long as I can remember. I graduated from NYU in 2017. My fur-babies keep me on my toes; between my sweet, destructive lab-mix Rhaegar and my fiesty calico Holly, I definitely have my hands full. When I'm not doing book-related things, I'm spending time with my husband, my animals, or attempting a new craft I'll never spend enough time on to truly get good at. Supernatural and The Office are constantly running on my TV, and I adore watching creative shows (i.e. baking shows and Project Runway are my ish).
I'm a member of the LGBTQIA+ community (#BisexualPride! <3) and of the neurodivergent community. I love to see healthy representation of queer and neurodivergent identities, especially in SFF, and I'm ecstatic to find and represent books that would have benefited me as a teen. I adore seeing works that celebrate and normalize these experiences, particularly in YA. Compelling characters are what grab me the most; I love books with strong, dynamic, complex characters that have complicated and nuanced relationships with others—especially romances! I love romantic threads that weave in seamlessly with the plot and characters’ motivations, particularly in SFF. In regard to POVs, the closer, the better; I want to live inside characters' heads when I read, and love as little distance as possible. I enjoy when authors break stereotypes and tropes, and I love when plots and characters surprise her, leaving her breathless on the edge of her seat.
Some of my favorite books: A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas; City of Bones by Cassandra Clare; The Shining and IT by Stephen King; Tithe by Holly Black; Skinned by Robin Wasserman; This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab; The Light Between Worlds by Laura E. Weymouth
I'm an ISFJ to the core with a penchant for punk, a weakness for puns, and the ferocity of dragons.
