Pitch Type: 3 lines

Adult Romance, Women’s Fiction,

Cate is looking for: I am always looking for unique stories with well-crafted plots and unforgettable characters. Characters that stay with me long after the last page.

In adult romance I look for fresh twists on familiar tropes and unique characters and the world’s in which they live and love. If you have Fantasy Romance I definitely want to see it.

In Women’s Fiction, I’d love a RomCom or a good Heist, a twist on Ocean’s 8 or Good Girls. I’d also love to find a sweeping historical in the vein of The Alice Network or The Secret History of Witches. Particular historical topics I’d love to see: WWI, The Cold War, Suffragettes. Even better from diverse and marginalized voices.

Things that just aren’t for me:

WF that feels like an issue book, divorce and infidelity, loss, illness, for the same reason I’m not the best agent for issue-driven contemporary YA.

Political Thrillers, Police Procedurals – unless it’s the next Alienist.

Erotica or BDSM, though I do like high heat levels in romance.
