Query Guidelines

For fiction queries, please send a query letter and the first 10-20 pages of the manuscript embedded in the email. No attachments please! For non-fiction queries, just send a query letter. All via email. If there is interest, I will be in touch within two weeks. Thanks very much for considering my agency.
