Natascha spent most of her childhood in a leather chair with her nose in a book. Formerly an editorial assistant at Simon & Schuster, her passion for books across genres and her desire to finding amazing talent drove her to make the transition from editorial to literary agent.


Her editorial philosophy stems from the idea that all books should be well written and entertaining.  Some of her authors include Katrina Moore (One Hug Katherine Tegen/HarperCollins 2019), Viviane Elbee (Teach Your Giraffe to Ski Albert Whitman 2018), and Raissa Figueroa (Sophia and Little Star Clear Fork Publishing 2018).

Natascha is primarily looking for picture book, middle grade and young adult manuscripts across most genres, including contemporary, mysteries, thrillers, fantasy, historical fiction, and narrative non-fiction. She is also looking for artists that speak to her creatively.
