Open to Queries!
Next week is a big week for me. I will be officially open to queries. With this step I am inducted into the exciting world of literary agenting; a world filled with outstanding, intelligent, thoughtful book lovers. I will be in excellent company and I am very excited.
I am still awaiting confirmation of my Manuscript Wish List page but in the meantime I can tell you I am looking for books, fiction and non-fiction, that take the reader on a journey into the natural world. What does the modern human relationship with nature look like? How does it differ in different cultures? I want the next population science non-fiction stunner that reads like an adventure novel or a family drama. I want human stories, fictional or otherwise, that have themes of nature and science that look at all aspects of life. I am partial to smart literary fiction but also love a good fast paced book-club-marketable story.
With that I leave you with an excellent article in the Guardian this week by Rebecca Solnit: https://www.theguardian.com/news/2023/jan/12/rebecca-solnit-climate-crisis-popular-imagination-why-we-need-new-stories?CMP=share_btn_link
Bring me your stories about climate change!
