1) Author-Illustrator GRAPHIC NOVELS 

I am a long-time, passionate reader of comics and have been representing graphic novels for over 14 years. I have been consistently ranked as one of the top 5 dealmakers in Children's Graphic Novels according to Publishers Marketplace. I love humorous, realistic and fantastical adventures for a juvenile audience or personal, layered stories for older teen audiences.

I look for stories about unique, memorable characters who face (and overcome!) common childhood (including preteen and teen) challenges in engaging and surprising ways. I love stories that bring to mind the real life child conflicts that are universal to all of us.

I am also very interested in nonfiction GNs for all ages. In nonfiction in all areas, I'm looking for important topics, accessible content, and fresh and evocative treatments.

At this time I am not open to submissions of GN scripts - I am only considering GNs by author-illustrators.


I am on the lookout for dynamic illustrators. I am open to submissions of portfolios by artists who want to illustrate other people's manuscripts as well as author-illustrators of picture books and graphic novels (and those who want to do both!). I enjoy developing an artist's portfolio, honing in on their goals as a creator, and working with them on short-term and long-term strategy.


I also have a special interest in books authored by nonbinary and transgender folx for all age groups, but particularly those for younger readers. Books exploring the subjects of toxic masculinity as well as male feminism are of particular interest (and the interests discussed in this paragraph would supercede the limits of the above categories/formats; if you are a transgender, nonbinary, or genderqueer author with a picture book, chapter book, MG or YA, or if you are cisgender and have a project with themes of toxic masculinity or male feminism, please send!).


Please only submit queries through Query Manager. Per ABLA policy, you may submit the same project to up to 3 different ABLA agents, but you must submit to each agent one-at-a-time (meaning, after one agent declines Project A, you may try again with Project A on another agent; after that 2nd agent declines Project A, you can try one more time).

For illustrators submitting art samples only, please put "SEEKING ART REPRESENTATION" in lieu of a title in the Query Manager form. If an art file is too large to attach to Query Manager, include a Google Drive or Dropbox link instead.

Please do NOT email your queries;
I cannot manage queries that come to my general inbox. Please follow submission guidelines to ensure your query is considered. 

An email is appropriate if you have received an offer of representation from another agent, so that I know that the query is either being withdrawn or to inform me of the deadline in which you will be making your decision.

I wish I could provide in-depth editorial feedback on all the submissions I receive, but it's simply not possible. Please know that I give each query thoughtful consideration and that while I'm not able to accept every new submission, I'm rooting for your success!
