Katie Grimm

Katie Grimm started as the assistant for Don Congdon Associates in 2007, and she currently maintains her own list of writers as well as handling several agency Estates. In Adult, she focuses on Literary and Upmarket Fiction – be it voicey, historical, mysterious or speculative – that has something to say about interpersonal relationships. She's also looking for Narrative Non-Fiction that blends the personal and investigative for a deeper emotional understanding of a topic. In Children’s, she loves the idea of finding new heartfelt and magical Middle Grade classics as well as either urgently contemporary or speculative Young Adult novels with the immediacy of feeling that comes with being a teenager. Across all genres, she’s looking for books with a heartbeat, and she’ll always be interested in the darker and weirder side of human history as well as previously under- or misrepresented voices and experiences.

Literary to upmarket fiction and narrative non-fiction in Adult, MG, and YA.
