Book Winner & Agent Looking for Clients – Allison Remcheck

Carol Baldwin is the winner of Scoop the Ice Cream Truck by Patricia Keeler.


Allison Remcheck Associate Agent at Rosemary Stimoli Literary

Allison has known what she wanted to be when she grew up—ever since the age of eight when she read in the back of a Baby-Sitters’ Club book that the author, Ann M. Martin, was an editor before she became a writer. She had no idea what the word “editor” meant—but she knew it had to be a person who read a lot, and she knew she wanted to work in publishing. She’s so lucky to say that she has only ever worked with books—a journey that has taken her from a library, to a bookstore, to a publishing house, and finally to the Studio—and books, particularly those for children, have been her lifelong passion. She believes there is simply nothing better in the world than putting the perfect book in a child’s hand. But there is something extraordinary in nurturing a book from the start, and seeing it find its place in the world. To Allison, being an agent is a bit like a treasure hunt to find the books that speak to her most easily. She finds herself drawn to voices that speak for themselves, stories that only the author can tell, and books that reflect the lives of every child—especially the ones told least often.

WHAT SHE IS LOOKING FOR:

I am most interested in middle-grade and YA fiction—in particular; fantasy grounded in reality with series potential; contemporary with a focus on current issues and diversity without being didactic; contemporary teen girl romance and coming of age; mystery and psychological thriller; and YA fiction with cross-over adult or new adult appeal. I am open to historical fiction, especially with a medieval or early 20th century backdrop. I am NOT interested in high fantasy, paranormal, chapter books for younger readers, non-fiction picture books, or non-author/illustrator picture books.

Talk tomorrow,

Kathy
