Sara D’Emic recently graduated from Emerson College with a B.A. in Writing, Literature, and Publishing, and is happy to be starting her career as an agent with Talcott Notch. Her reading tastes range from Dostoevsky and Dumas to Burroughs and Salinger to Lovecraft and King.

Sara is looking for adult horror, urban fantasy, paranormal, magical realism, science fiction, mystery, thriller, or crime fiction. In nonfiction, she’s looking for science and technology books. “Compelling characters are the crux of good fiction,” says Sara, “and I’m seeking stories that will spark the imagination and the soul.”

For fiction, attach a 10-page sample. For nonfiction attach a one-page sample plus a table of contents.
