New literary agent Nicole Resciniti of The Seymour Agency seeks authors

The Seymour Agency
475 Miner Street Road
Canton, New York 13617

After a lifetime of battling an addiction to books, Nicole Resciniti admitted she had a problem. Various jobs (SAT tutoring, high school Marine Biology teacher) couldn’t offset the obsession. Mary Sue Seymour offered an answer: become a literary agent.
A consummate science geek and card-carrying Mensa member, Nicole is a member of the Association of Authors' Representatives, American Christian Fiction Writers, Romance Writers of America, and Mensa. She holds degrees in biology, psychology, and behavioral neuroscience.

Nicole is seeking romance, mainstream suspense, thrillers, mysteries, YA and inspirational novels; also science fiction/fantasy novels and action/adventure.

Query Nicole by email only at
