You are querying Quressa Robinson | Nelson Literary Agency
Quressa is looking for:
• Modern-day blue stockings, POC fangirls/fanboys, #blackgirlmagic, #carefreeblackgirls, #blackboyjoy, LGBTQ+, neuroatypical/neurodivergent, and disabled POCs as leads
• Middle grade (contemporary and SF/F). Cute, quirky, charming, and fun. Along the lines of KIKI'S DELIVERY SERVICE and SPIRITED AWAY.
• Young adult (contemporary, SF/F, historical)
• Adult SF/F with strong genre-bending/crossover appeal. (Think the All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness, THE NIGHT CIRCUS by Erin Morgenstern, and THE AGE OF MIRACLES by Karen Thompson Walker. I’m also a fan of Anne Bishop and Naomi Novik.)
• Literary fiction that is thoughtful, evocative, page-turning. (THE MOTHERS, BEHOLD THE DREAMERS, TELL THE WOLVES I'M HOME, STATION 11)
• Upmarket and commercial fiction
• Passion projects in narrative nonfiction with a strong literary voice and commercial appeal (WILD by Cheryl Strayed, HILLBILLY ELEGY by JD Vance, BLACK MAN IN A WHITE COAT by Damon Tweedy, WHEN BREATH BECOMES AIR by Paul Kalanithi). Would love to see non-whitewashed cowboy stories; pop science by women, specifically women of color; and literary, voice-driven memoir with commercial appeal.
• #ownvoices and marginalized authors in all genres mentioned above. Inclusive narratives in all genres.
