Critique of A Picture Book and Query by Kathleen Rushall of Marsal Lyon Literary Agency

This item is now closed! Thank you!
Kathleen Rushall of Marsal Lyon Literary has offered up a picture book and query critique



Kathleen Rushall started as an intern at the Sandra Dijkstra Agency, and then spent almost two years at Waterside Productions. Kathleen looks forward to garnering fresh voices, strong narratives, and whimsical tales in all areas of young adult literature including contemporary fiction, suspense, Southern gothic, historical fiction, and science fiction. She is open to all genres of YA, but has a soft spot for thrillers, horror, romance, laugh-out-loud voices, and would love to find a dark mystery. She’s also open to New Adult queries. Kathleen is looking for funny, character-driven, quirky picture books and all genres of big voiced middle grade fiction.

Kathleen also represents select nonfiction and is interested in parenting, cooking, crafts, business, alternative medicine, women’s interest, humor, pop-culture, and some how-to.

A few of Kathleen’s recent and soon to be published books include INSOMNIA by J.R. Johansson (Flux), A RUSTIC CHIC WEDDING: A Collection of DIY Wedding Crafts and Inspirations by Morgann Hill (Running Press), and BACKHOE JOE by Lori Alexander (Harper Collins).
Kathleen graduated from Seattle University with her bachelor’s degree in English and minor in fine arts. She moved back to her hometown of San Diego to earn her master’s degree in English, specializing in children’s literature, from San Diego State University. When she is not at her desk, Kathleen enjoys exploring new restaurants, dreaming of Ireland, and walking her Australian Shepherd, Finn.

This item will close on March 16, 2013, at 11:00 PM EST. Any bids placed after that time stamp will not be honored. Once the auction closes and payment from the highest bidder is confirmed, instructions on how to send your pages to Kathleen will be emailed to the winner. Since the files will be submitted electronically, this item is open internationally.
