Linda represents picture books, middle grade and young adult novels, as well as children’s non-fiction. She likes stories for kids that deal with issues of identity, history, sexual politics, feminism, and culture. Some of her other interests also include art, food, and the environment. She looks for the offbeat, quirky, left of center, and bonus points are given if you keep your sense of humor about it all. Linda is looking for literary and commercial fiction, mysteries, speculative fiction, and projects that use magical realism. She is actively seeking to represent projects that give voice to work by and about all kinds of marginalized people.
