Agent Spotlight: Diana Fox

Status: Open to submissions   
foxliterarylogo About: "Fox Literary is a boutique agency which represents commercial and literary fiction, along with select works of nonfiction that have broad commercial appeal.
"We are actively seeking the following: young adult fiction (all genres), science fiction/fantasy, romance, historical fiction, literary fiction, thrillers, horror, and graphic novels. We're always interested in books that cross genres and reinvent popular concepts with an engaging new twist (especially when there’s a historical and/or speculative element involved).
"On the nonfiction side, we're interested in memoirs, biography, and smart narrative nonfiction; Diana particularly enjoys memoirs and other nonfiction about sex work, addiction and recovery, popular science, and pop culture. Isabel is especially interested in narratives focused on travel, food, and the science of beauty, as well as microhistories of all things decadent and frivolous." (Link)
What She's Looking For:
Genres of Interest: Young adult, literary fiction, science fiction, fantasy, romance, historical fiction, thrillers, suspense, and graphic novels. She is also interested in non-fiction memoirs, biography, popular science, history, pop culture, narrative nonfiction and books about sex work, addiction and recovery.
What She Isn't Looking For:
"Fox Literary does not represent screenplays, poetry, category Westerns, horror, Christian/inspirational fiction, or children's picture books." (Link)

Thanks for the great spotlight. Since she's not really interested in middle grade, I'll just keep her in mind if I write a YA fantasy. She sounds great for a YA person since she doesn't mind the slush pile.

Ms. Fox has reviewed her profile.

Thank you for commenting Natalie! She does sound great, doesn't she?

You provide some of the best agent info on the web Casey! It's so great you have all those interviews linked here. I didn't know she repped adult books. I just might send her a query. Thanks!

Marsha Sigman said...

I love her. Just queried her last week and I write YA fantasy. I have every finger and toe crossed in hope.lol

On top of everything...she watches the tv show 'Supernatural'.
I am not sure she could be more awesome.

Casey, thanks for another great post! I just learned about Diana as I typed up Michelle Hodkin's bio for our contest today. We're excited for the release of her book under Diana's representation!

Thanks again!

Queried her on 5/24 for adult science fantasy... no answer yet, but this might be a good sign!
