The Agent = Hannah Bowman of Liza Dawson Associates

This month’s agent was Hannah Bowman of Liza Dawson Associates! She’s pretty engaged with the online writing community, so if you’d like more information, you might check out these sites:

And here’s a little bit more about her: “Hannah joined the agency in 2011. She has a B.A. from Cornell University, summa cum laude in English and magna cum laude in Mathematics. While a student, she spent four summers working in particle physics at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, before eventually deciding her true interest was books. Before joining Liza Dawson Associates, Hannah interned briefly with agent Weronika Janczuk, now of Lynn C. Franklin Associates.

“Hannah's recent sales include Pierce Brown's science-fiction trilogy beginning with RED RISING (Del Rey, Fall 2013) and Rosamund Hodge's YA fantasy SUNDERED (Balzer & Bray, Winter 2014).

“In her free time, she writes her own fiction (mostly science fiction and fantasy) and plays the organ.

“Hannah specializes in commercial fiction, especially science fiction and fantasy, women's fiction, cozy mysteries, romance and young adult. Hannah is also interested in nonfiction, particularly in the areas of mathematics, science and religion.”

Winners coming up shortly!
