Blue Heron Literary represents mainstream literary and commercial fiction, and nonfiction in the areas of memoir, biography and popular culture.

 I am actively seeking the following:

  • Fiction: Middle grade and young adult fiction (all genres), from adventure driven and fantastical to contemporary settings exploring social issues.  For new adult and adult fiction, plot-driven literary works and upmarket commercial stories with only a touch of genre. 

I am especially drawn to a strong voice and dynamic characters, a well-paced plot, witty or quirky humor, and am always susceptible to a good solid tug on the heart-strings.

  • Nonfiction: Memoir, popular culture and narrative nonfiction.
     

What I am not looking for:

  • Picture books, poetry, true crime, romance, westerns, short story collections.
