LGBTQ-themed YA

Note that she doesn't normally look at YA books. I'm an exception because I was recommended to her by her daughter. I don't know if she'd consider other YA submissions.

Katherine is very kind. She is professional, straightforward, fast, and personal. That's a great combination. I think she'd be a fantastic agent. I highly recommend you submit to her if your book falls into one of her categories.
