Interested in working together?
I am currently seeking adult nonfiction and am particularly interested in ambitious, unconventional, smart, and well-written book projects that contribute new perspectives, revel in the quirkiness of the world, and change the way we see it. I love working with scientists and other experts seeking to translate specialist knowledge to the mainstream to push cultural conversations in new and surprising directions. Submissions from BIPOC and LGBTQ-2S creators are enthusiastically welcomed.
I am building my nonfiction list in culture, social justice, psychology, business, history, nature/environmentalism, lifestyle, and food and beverage. I am not currently acquiring conventional memoirs (although books exploring a topic that incorporate a personal story are very welcome).
I will open to hard science fiction and speculative literary fiction queries in October and January. I like the same qualities in fiction and nonfiction: big ideas; ambitious and/or clever premises; a sense of humour; and engagement with the big questions of our times.
In your pitch letter, please include:
• an overview of your project
• insight into what makes it special/unique
I also request a bio and 20 pages of sample writing for all submissions.
For nonfiction, I welcome full proposals but do not require them.
Due to the volume of queries, I generally only respond when I’m interested in reading more (although I do look at all queries). If I haven’t been in touch after 45 days, please assume this is a pass.
