Stacey Graham has joined Red Sofa Literary as an associate agent. Previosuly, Stacey has been on the other side of the literary blanket. She is the  author of four books (including Haunted Stuff: Demonic Dolls, Screaming Skulls, and Other Creepy Stuff) and multiple short stories, and has worked as a screenwriter, ghostwriter, and editor.

She loves working with writers at all stages of their careers and will use her experience in authorship to help navigate the sometimes crazy waters of publishing for her clients. She currently lives outside of Washington, D.C. with her husband and five children. She considers the resulting nervous tick from her children to be charming. She hangs out on Facebook here

Stacey is seeking Dark Middle Grade (e.g., Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children), Horror, Humor and humorous memoir (e.g., Jenny Lawson and Mindy Kaling), New Age with a strong platform, History – fiction and nonfiction, adult or middle grade (Colonial US and British History are favorites), Quirky nonfiction — adult, middle grade or young adult.

Currently she is not looking for YA fiction, sci-fi, romance (for now), or fantasy. Projects with a strong humor vibe will always get a second look
