Associate Literary Agent Lauren Spieller comes to TriadaUS with a background in literary scouting and editorial consulting. She has a sharp editorial eye, and is passionate about author advocacy. Lauren is seeking Middle Grade and Young Adult fiction, as well as select Adult fiction and non-fiction. Whatever the age category or genre, Lauren is passionate about representing authors writing about and from traditionally marginalized communities.
In MG, she’s drawn to heartfelt contemporaries, fantasy and sci fi, and exciting adventures. In YA, she’d love to find authentic teen voices in any and all genres, though she’s currently on the hunt for high concept, contemporary realistic stories, and all kinds of fantasy. In Adult, Lauren is seeking upmarket and commercial fiction, particularly psychological thrillers (a la Lauren Beukes and Gillian Flynn), immersive literary fantasies, such as The Night Circus, The Miniaturist, and A Darker Shade of Magic, and commercial SFF, such as The Fifth Season, Jade City, and The Rook. She is also interested in unique non-fiction with an existing platform. She is not a good fit for category romance, military non-fiction unless it is about a person from a marginalized community, or memoirs.
