Secret Agent Unveiled: Danielle Svetcov


Applause and virtual flowers for the lovely Danielle Svetcov of Levine Greenberg for being our Secret Agent this month!

Danielle's Bio:

Danielle Svetcov joined Levine Greenberg in 2001 as a book doctor, and a few years later, began selling books from her “remote” outpost in San Francisco, California. She looks for titles that make her laugh (e.g. Skymaul—Happy Crap You Can Buy From a Plane) and, if nothing comes along, will write her own laugh track (The Un-Constipated Gourmet—Secrets to a Moveable Feast). She particularly likes to laugh while she’s crying (Half Baked), or eating (Jam It, Pickle It, Cure It), or parenting (Balance Is a Crock and Sleep Is for the Weak), or sweating (Yoga Bitch). Also, if you’re a mystery writer with snappy elocutionary style, if your book traffics in awkward heroes or charming family dysfunction, please do make contact. Prior to Levine Greenberg, Danielle worked as a freelance writer, an editor, a kitchen slave, and a pastry hawker. She has an MFA in fiction from Warren Wilson College.

Winners forthcoming!

She was a freelance writer, an editor, a kitchen slave, and a pastry hawker? And she has an MFA from Warren Wilson College?

She sounds as though she's a hard working agent with a great personality!

And Ms. Svetcov, if you're reading this, thanks again for critiquing my work. (I was #19.) Your comments were helpful! Thank you for your time.
