Mackenzie Brady is an agent at New Leaf Literary & Media, specializing in non-fiction for all ages and select YA and adult fiction. She was a microbiologist in her pre-publishing life, so she’s always on the hunt for projects that bring new facets of science to light. She is endlessly fascinated by the human body, especially the heart.
Her taste in non-fiction extends beyond science books to memoirs, lost histories, epic sports narratives, and gift/lifestyle books. She is particularly interested in projects with a strong narrative and a female bend. Her favorite novels range from philosophical and charming to downright dark and gritty. She also represents illustrators (with or without book projects of their own). In the end, all she wants is to be told a good story. Follow her on twitter for the play by play.
