Secret Agent Unveiled: Monika Verma

Warm thanks to the lovely and thorough Monika Verma of the Levine Greenberg Agency!

Monika's Bio:

Monika joined Levine Greenberg in 2006, and is now an agent specializing in humor, pop culture, memoir, young adult, narrative nonfiction and style titles. She loves to work with authors to develop their writing careers, whether that means helping them make the jump from blogger to published author, brainstorming the perfect funny gift book topic, or working with a debut author to showcase a strong narrative voice. Her clients include humorist and actor Nick Offerman, costume designer Janie Bryant (AMC's Mad Men), and writer and blogger Allie Brosh (Hyperbole and a Half.) She is currently expanding her list to work on young adult fiction across several genres, including paranormal, historical and contemporary.

When she isn’t reading submissions, she loves dipping into a good literary mystery (usually with a strong cup of tea by her side). Some of her favorite authors include Denise Mina, A.S. Byatt, Josephine Tey, Jasper Fforde, P.G. Wodehouse and Louisa May Alcott.

Winners forthcoming!
