Amy Boggs is a sci-fi/fantasy geek who has been professionally geeking out over books at the agency since 2009.
All things fantasy and science fiction, especially high fantasy, urban fantasy, steampunk (and its variations), YA, MG, and alternate history.
Unique works of contemporary YA, historical fiction, Westerns, and works that challenge their genre are also welcome.
She seeks and supports authors who are marginalized, and wants work that reflects our world’s wide range of humanity in any and all respects, such as (but not limited to) gender, race, ethnicity, disability, and sexuality.
