Sarah Bedingfield has joined Levine Greenberg Rostan as an associate agent, working with Stephanie Rostan. Like all new agents, she needs authors, and is actively building a clientele of literary and upmarket commercial fiction authors.

Prior to joining LGR in 2016, Sarah was an assistant editor at Crown and Hogarth. There, she worked with a range of bestselling and award-winning novels, including the Man Booker International Prize winning debut, The Vegetarian by Han Kang, and The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George. 

Sarah loves most types of literary and upmarket commercial fiction, especially novels that show powerful imagination, compulsive plotting and unique voices. Epic family dramas, literary novels with notes of magical realism, darkly gothic stories that may lead to nightmares and twisty psychological suspense are among her favorite things to read. 

A southerner at heart, she can’t help but love books set in the south, but she’s a die-hard for any world immersive enough to make her miss her stop on the train, cry in public, or desperately unable to sleep.

Sarah hails from North Carolina, where she graduated from UNC Chapel Hill with a double major in Psychology and English. She spent her first three years in New York teaching high school English in the Bronx and earning an MS in Education from Hunter College. While she misses the warm weather and oversized oak trees of her first home, she wouldn’t trade the inspiring, beautiful energy of “The City” and of publishing for just about anything (short of the beach). When she isn’t reading, Sarah loves to hike and go camping, travel to countries she’s never seen before, cook new recipes, and practice/learn photography and interior design. 

Her favorite authors include Sarah Waters, Shirley Jackson, Matthew Thomas, Maria Semple, Emily St. John Mandel, Erin Morgenstern, and Victor Hugo. Check out a few of the books that have made a mark on her life here.

Query Sarah at: submit@lgrliterary.com  
Include a maximum of 50 pages with your query or use the agency’s online submission form here.
