Sarah Younger at Nancy Yost Literary Agency seeks all varieties of romance

The Nancy Yost Agency specializes in commercial fiction. The newest member of the team (and so the one most eager to find new authors) is Sarah E Younger. Before joining the Nancy Yost Literary Agency, Sarah was the eBook editor at Press 53, a publisher of short story and poetry collections based in North Carolina.  Sarah grew up on a horse farm in North Carolina and graduated from the University of Denver’s graduate course in publishing.  She also runs the Nancy Yost Literary Twitter.

Sarah is specifically interested in all varieties of YA and Romance: Contemporary, Historical, Western, Sports, Regency, Inspirational, Category, Urban Fantasy, Parnormal, Romantic Suspense/Thriller, Young Adult, New Adult and any combination thereof.

Currently on her wish list: a contemporary military romance; a historical romance set during the Colonial/Revolutionary War or the Civil War or any great/quirky historical romance, or a really awesome inspirational romance. She also enjoys stories with a strong supporting cast of animal characters: horses, dogs, cats.
