Karyn Fischer of BookStop Literary Agency

Karyn Fischer joined BookStop Literary Agency in 2014 and is currently looking to build her client list. Karyn holds an MFA in Creative Writing, has completed three publishing internships, and previously worked as a bookseller and buyer in a small independent bookstore. Her background has given her a unique perspective on the book industry, as well as the skills to find and promote books she loves.

What she is looking for: Karyn is particularly drawn to young adult and middle grade novels. Her favorite genres include gothic novels with twisty narratives and dark secrets, historical fiction, literary thrillers, well-drawn fantasy, and heart-tugging contemporary stories. She’s looking for anything with memorable characters, an engaging voice, and a tightrope- taut plot.
