I am often drawn to darker tales that weave together excellent characters and an impossible-to-put-down story, though I also love a smart, multilayered, witty rom-com in the style of Emily Henry.

I am very hands-on editorially, and love working with my authors to shape their manuscripts, and love discovering debut authors, helping them find a home for their books.


I’m on the hunt for high-concept thrillers, crime, rom-com, psychological suspense, horror and speculative, genre-bending fiction. No Fantasy please! I’m also always on the lookout for reading group fiction in the vein of Jodi Picoult or Liane Moriarty. 


On the non-fiction side I am especially interested in pop science / psychology, narrative history, true crime and investigative journalism. 


I am currently open to submissions
