Bree Ogden joins D4EO Literary Agency, seeks young adult fiction

D4EO Literary Agency
Principal agent: Robert (Bob) Diforio
7 Indian Valley Road, Weston, CT 06883

D4EO has over 1,000 published books under contract and has launched the writing careers of more than two hundred authors. The agency is based in Connecticut with associate agents in Seattle (Mandy Hubbard, Kristin Miller and Bree Ogden) and Destin, FL (Joyce Holland).

Bree Ogden is the newest member of the team. Previously she was an associate literary agent at Martin Literary Management for nearly 2 years. Bree has spent many years working as a freelance journalist and currently co-operates the macabre children’s magazine Underneath the Juniper Tree where she serves as Editorial Director. Bree is seeking Middle grade, Young Adult, New Adult fiction (readership: ages 18-30), Graphic Novels, YA Nonfiction, and Art books. She is especially looking for...

Young Adult:
• Dark (not angst-ridden)
• Realistic
• Psychological horror (with no paranormal elements)
• Hard sci fi. Meaning no fantasy, or magical realism at all
• A Dexter-ish type YA black comedy
• A Roaring Twenties historical for YA
• A manuscript written in the era of Mad Men with panache and style
• A unique and theme-driven art book

She will not look at:
• Paranormal or fantasy (that includes urban fantasy)
• Romance (unless there is a superb dark, psychotic element)
• Magical realism
• World building
