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.
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
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.
