Suzie Townsend

After teaching high school English for several years, Suzie Townsend started publishing at FinePrint Literary Management in January 2009 and worked her way up from intern to agent. Now an agent at New Leaf Literary, she represents adult and children’s fiction. Suzie reps, among many others, Victoria Aveyard, Stacey Kade, Cora Carmack, Mindee Arnett, MarcyKate Connolly and Chelsea Fine. She is actively looking to build her list. In adult, she’s specifically looking for new adult, romance (all subgenres), fantasy (urban fantasy, science fiction, steampunk, epic fantasy) and crime fiction (mysteries, thrillers). In Childrens’ she loves YA (all subgenres) and is dying to find great Middle Grade projects. Suzie loves strong characters and voice driven stories that break out of the typical tropes of their genres. For more information on her projects and clients, see here. Suzie is the lead Tumblr question-answerer on New Leaf Literary’s Tumblr, and frequently provides insightful, awesome answers about the industry.
