Thank you, Jane, for the warm introduction. It’s been a whirlwind of instructions and introductions, so please bear with me. I recently moved back to NY after a 6 year stint in Boston, where I had my first job in publishing at a boutique literary agency. Ms. Carolyn Jenks was a terrific mentor for over a year and I’m happy to say that we still keep in touch. I have her to thank for taking a chance on me and opening my eyes to what I now know is my dream job. Books have always fostered my insatiable appetite for learning, and I look forward to that in what I hope will be a lengthy career at DGLM. I’m thrilled to be a part of the team. What a remarkable group of people, as I’m sure you all know by now! For a brief biography and personal essay, please visit Who We Are and What We’re Looking For.

    It’s always inspiring to meet young professionals committed to books, so we’re glad to have you onboard. I think you’ll be very happy with the spirited, talented and dedicated folks at the agency.

  2. Like I said before, welcome! I’m intrigued by what you mean by “alternative literature” in your bio, since everyone seems to have a different definition for that. Care to clarify your conception of it?

    Thank you Catherine and Kristin, I’m so glad to be here.

    Kristin, I consider alternative literature to be anything experimental. You’re right, the definition is constantly changing and everyone has their own opinion of what constitutes that. I don’t think there will ever be a set definition, because as time goes on, ideas and formats that were once experimental become more mainstream.

    I’d like to keep it general in that sense and say that I’d be happy to take a look at anything that pushes the boundaries, whether that’s with the topic, how the ideas are offered, etc.
