I no longer have a slush pile of my own, but this blog was titled as I began my career at Simon and Schuster’s Touchstone/Fireside imprint in 2008. Shortly after, I hopped over to the agency side of the business and rapidly climbed the ranks to become a literary agent at BookEnds, LLC, where I had way too much fun for a person sitting in an office and gained an invaluable perspective on this ancient and ever-evolving industry.
I have a bachelor’s degree in English literature and language from Pace University’s Dyson College of Arts and Sciences and I’m currently 3 credits short of my M.S. in book publishing, which is like an MBA for publishing people.
I’m available and interested in all things literary, like:
- Blogging, of course. I love to guest blog and switch-blog, as well as feature others on mine
- Conferences and events
I live in New Jersey with my family and my personal interests include watching movies, reading (for fun, still) traveling and making my three-year-old son, Henry, laugh.
