Folio Literary Management I began my career in publishing in 2004 while studying for my Master’s degree in English Literature at New York University, and have been hooked ever since. During that time, I assisted the agents Wendy Sherman and Joelle Delbourgo, and found myself in love with the process of discovering new writers and helping existing writers further their careers. After graduating, I became an agent with Wendy Sherman Associates, and there began representing books in many different areas of fiction and non-fiction. My list includes the authors S.G. Browne, Novella Carpenter, Mieshelle Nagelschneider, Michele Young-Stone, and Julia Wertz just to name a few, and it is equally split between fiction and non-fiction. I greatly enjoy working with emerging writers, and will work closely with you to make sure your novel or proposal is in great shape before sending it out to editors. Although I do find many of

She was a high school English teacher for six years before changing careers and joining FinePrint as an intern. Suzie runs the Confessions of a Wandering Heart blog.

Wondering which books this agent fell in love with recently and sold? CLICK HERE to find out! For twenty years, Stephany Evans, President of FinePrint Literary Management, has represented nonfiction writers in the areas of health and wellness, spirituality, lifestyle (including home renovating, decorating, food & drink, and sustainability), memoir and narrative nonfiction. Her clients span an unusual spectrum from meditation ’sitters’ to ultra-runners.
