Karmen Wells is the new Film/TV Agent at The Rights Factory. She represents book-to-screen projects, both inside and outside the TRF clientele. For the past two years, she's also been a book editor and screenplay consultant out of Shelf-Made Creative Services, and was previously at HarperCollins Canada.

More than anything, she loves unflinching horror and thought-provoking originality. Karmen lives in Winnipeg, Manitoba but looks forward to the day she can pack it all up and venture out as a digital nomad.
