What’s important/interesting for potential clients to know about you and what you’re looking for?
I always know when a novel I am considering is a good fit– I start having imaginary conversations with the author in my mind. With non-fiction projects, I’m looking for a similar level of connection to the material but also to the subject matter–I like to work with people who are particularly insightful and who write really well about things that I am either curious about or that I care deeply about (or who write so well that they make me care deeply about things I didn’t think I cared about before). I love collaboration and working with people who love it too. I particularly look for books that take me into unfamiliar worlds, or force me to look at the world differently.
Before law school, I briefly (but memorably) worked as a production assistant at MTV. I’m originally from Montreal, Canada and am the mother of two extroverted teenagers.
What are you NOT looking for?
Children’s books, genre science fiction, romance, cookbooks.
