The Mission

Sadler Children's Literary is an independent literary agency, serving aspiring authors and illustrators and branding careers through active media and marketing management in the field of children's literature.





At Sadler Children's Literary, I’m interested in your children's book and your career.  I’m interested in representing authors for picture book, early readers, chapter books, middle grade, young adult—fiction, nonfiction, folktales or freeverse. I’m really interested in working with you to get your story all sparkly and “just right” and right into the hands of the right publisher.


As a marketing communication consultant for years, I also enjoy helping create your brand as an author or author-illustrator.  I really try to partner with you to create a strategy that will help get your book (and career) launched in today's tight market.


I’d love to work with you to make your book project a success, from editing to selling your book to the right publisher to creating a consistent buzz that gets the word out about your book and keeps it out there for sales to be effective.


As a writer, I’ve intensely studied pacing picture books and how this really enhances middle grade and young adult projects.  I also write picture books, middle grades, young adult—all genres, really. I studied my craft and earned my  MFA in Writing for Children & Young Adults from Hamline University.  Having gone through an MFA program, I saw how important a warm, nurturing environment was to the creative process and realized there was a great need for collaborating to further a career.


I am an active member oof Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) and open to speaking at conferences around the country.
