New Literary Agent: Brittany Howard of Corvisiero Literary Agency

She is seeking: Her first love is YA-- from High Fantasy to Paranormal to to soft Sci-Fi to Contemporary-- she loves all young adult.

For adult fiction, she prefers stories that are a romance at heart-- Contemporary, Paranormal, Fantasy, Sci-Fi, and Historical are all genres she's been known to enjoy. Anything with theatrical or artistic or interesting historical elements will probably catch her eye, too.
