Tricia Skinner

Agent

Agent Tri­cia Skin­ner was raised in Detroit, Michigan. She obtained her undergraduate degree from the nationally acclaimed Journalism Institute for Media Diversity at Wayne State University and earned her graduate degree from Southern Methodist University. Professionally, she began her writing career as a newspaper reporter and wrote for The Detroit News, Investor’s Business Daily, MSN, and The Houston Chronicle.

Tricia has 20 years of experience working with the video game industry in various roles, including public relations, industry relations, and writing/editing. She is also a fantasy author (represented by Fuse co-founder Laurie McLean).

Diversity in genre fiction is dear to Tricia’s heart. As an agent, Tricia wants to represent authors who reflect diversity and cultures in their work. She specializes in Adult, Young Adult, and Middle Grade. On the personal side, Tricia has a Tom Hiddleston obsession and she is definitely Team Vader. Her fam­ily includes three Great Danes (so far).

I represent adult, young adult and middle grade in these core categories: science fiction, romance, fantasy, history and graphic novels. I’m selectively considering women’s fiction and thrillers. All subgenres in my listed categories are encouraged.

Inclusive stories provide an incredible sense of joy. I’d like to read more multicultural works. Writers who identify with a marginalized community are strongly encouraged to query.

I don’t represent faith-based/religious manuscripts. I also don’t represent short story collections, screenplays, poetry, picture books, chapter books, erotica, novellas, or non-fiction. I will not consider previously published or self-published books.
