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 on MTV’s The State. 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.
