A few things I'm not looking for: Greek mythology or derivative adaptations, ghosts or supernatural/paranormal, graphic physical abuse, glorification of racist themes.
NOTE: I DO NOT represent Middle Grade, Children's, Women's Fiction, Romance, Non-fiction, faith-based/religious manuscripts, poetry, short stories, novellas, chapter books, or erotica. I'm also not considering previously published or self-published books at this time.
A note regarding marginalization: In stories where protagonists and POV characters are part of a marginalized community, I prefer stories by writers who share those marginalizations. However, public acknowledgement of a writer's own marginalization is neither necessary nor required, as the privacy and safety of every writer is paramount. Supporting writers who draw from their own lived experiences and backgrounds is important to me, but people's stories do not have to be issue-related or center group or individual traumas for them to be valid and have worth. But if writing from one's own experience is not something you believe is important, I may not be the right agent for you.
