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

Haley Casey has always had a special place in her heart 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's actively building her list and is ready to assist her authors in achieving their publishing goals!


For adult fiction, I'm seeking women’s fiction, book club fiction, and contemporary and paranormal romance. In nonfiction, I'm open to memoirs; narrative nonfiction; true crime; and anything that addresses LGBTQ+ issues, women's issues, or sustainability.

For young adults, I'm open to just about anything: contemporary fiction, mystery, horror, fantasy, light science fiction, dystopian, and nonfiction.

For middle grade, I'm seeking much of the same: contemporary, mystery, fantasy, and light sci-fi.

Send me anything that focuses on minority voices, including POC, LGBTQ+, disability, and mental health issues. I love thoughtful and meaningful magical realism, nuanced characters, urban fantasy, clever fairytale retellings, and reimagined classics.


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.
