1. Brief biog about yourself?
I’m an agent at the New York-based Wolf Literary Services. Previously, I worked for literary magazines and reviews such as the then-Chicago-based StoryQuarterly and Bookslut.com. And I secretly believe it is the scandalous name of the latter that secured my job at Georges Borchardt, Inc., another literary agency in New York, where I had worked for about eight and a half years before moving to Wolf. As with most folks in the publishing industry, work is so much a part of my life and identity, but when I’m not reading or doing bookish things, I like to run (OK, “jog” is more accurate), cook, paint, and collect stamps in my passport.
