About Connor: Prior to finding a home at Lucinda Literary in 2016, Connor began his career at The Weinstein Company and then as a production assistant for CBS Television Studios. He majored in English at Union College, where he was quarterback and captain of the football team and wrote a screenplay for his thesis that became a finalist selection at the Woods Hole Film Festival. Westchester, NY, born and bred, Connor makes the most of his daily commute, reading queries and editing manuscripts on the train, though he doesn’t quite fit in amongst the throng of bankers. When he is not reading or writing, he most enjoys playing with his dog, Cash, an Aussiedoodle with one blue eye. In addition to working at Lucinda Literary, Connor is a freelance writer for golf.com, where you can catch him moderating live major championship blogs.

He is Seeking: Connor is actively looking for middle grade, young adult, and adult fiction, as well as nonfiction. His interests are diverse, though he is particularly drawn to stories with emotional resonance and vivid characters. More than anything he is looking for authors with whom he can build lasting relationships.

How to Submit: Please send your brief query letter—ideally less than 300 words—and the first 50 pages of your manuscript to connor@lucindaliterary.com, with the word QUERY in the subject line. For book proposals, feel free to attach the entire proposal.
