HALEY CASEY

A white cis woman in her late 30s with dark blonde hair, dark-rimmed glasses, and a wall of books behind her.

Haley has always had a special place in her soul for stories, but it was when she wrote her first chapter book in fifth grade that her true love of literature was realized. In 2015, she graduated from The University of Kansas with a Bachelor’s degree in creative writing, and that fall, she attended the Denver Publishing Institute. She began her full-time career at Ogden Publications, where she was an editor for four years. There she worked with a variety of authors across multiple magazines, wrote articles, edited podcasts, and even styled photos—anything to add some creativity to her days. In 2020, she interned at Metamorphosis Literary Agency and Creative Media Agency, Inc. before stepping into her role as an associate agent at CMA. She also manages the digital arm of the company. Haley is actively building her list, is seeking to build long-term partnerships with her clients, and is ready to assist her authors in achieving their publishing goals.

WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR

In adult fiction: women’s fiction, book club fiction, contemporary romance, and paranormal romance.

In adult nonfiction: memoir, narrative, true crime, cultural, LGBTQ+, and women’s issues; and gardening and sustainability.

In young adult: contemporary, mystery and horror, fantasy, (light) science fiction, dystopian, and nonfiction.

In middle-grade: contemporary, mystery, fantasy, science fiction, and dystopian.

SAMPLE TITLES OR AUTHORS

I'm a new agent, so I don't have published titles I can share. However, apart from a couple of picture book deals, I can say that I've made a sale on an upper-YA, LGBTQ+, contemporary romance that's coming in May 2023.
