Red Fox Literary is an impressive little agency specializing in picture books, middle grade and young adult novels. 

Stephanie Fretwell-Hill has recently joined Red Fox Literary, and like all new agents, she needs authors. 

Stephanie started her publishing career in 2004 at Walker Books Ltd. in London, where she sold foreign language rights. Working in a design-led company with legendary artists such as Helen Oxenbury and Lucy Cousins sparked her love of illustration, while her sales role gave her an international perspective on children’s publishing.

In 2011, Stephanie moved back home to the United States, where she joined Peachtree Publishers as an editor. During her four years there, she acquired fiction and nonfiction picture books, middle grade, and young adult titles.

Stephanie lives in Atlanta, Georgia, with her English husband, brand new baby girl, and a border collie named Rooney. When her nose isn’t in a book, she can often be found changing diapers, renovating a house, traveling someplace new, or cooking dinner.

Stephanie represents both authors and illustrators of board books, picture books, middle grade, and young adult. She will consider stories in any genre, but looks for a strong voice, rich and multi-layered plots, and stylish, classic, or quirky illustrations. Most of all, she loves anything that really makes her laugh.

Deadline: Stephanie will be accepting unsolicited manuscripts until July 25, 2016.

Query Stephanie at: querystephanie@redfoxliterary.com  
Send the complete text of a picture book, the first three chapters of a novel, or illustration samples. Text should be embedded within the body of the email. Illustration samples may be sent as attachments. Full submission guidelines here.
