About Sara Sciuto
Sara has been in the book publishing industry for over seven years, and just prior to launching this company, she was an active literary agent specializing in children's books. She decided to open up a literary services company so she could spend less time on the phone calls, emails, and administrative tasks that can consume an agent's day, and instead focus on her favorite part of the job: hands-on developmental editing.
As an agent, Sara specialized in children’s fiction and nonfiction (picture books, middle grade, and YA). She is a graduate of the University of California, San Diego, and also completed literature coursework at NYU. Her first industry experience was working on film and foreign rights with Taryn Fagerness Agency. From there she joined Full Circle Literary where she specialized in children’s literature, before joining Fuse Literary as their "kid lit specialist," where she remained until launching her literary services company.
Sara's agent client list included authors of novelty/baby books and picture books (text-only authors, as well as author-illustrators), early readers/chapter books, middle grade, and young adult novels. Some of her books sold include: I DON'T WANT TO BE A FROG (picture book; Doubleday/Penguin Random House), EDNA, THE VERY FIRST CHICKEN (picture book; Holt/Macmillan), ALIENS GET THE SNIFFLES, TOO (picture book; Candlewick), NEITHER (author-illustrated picture book; Little Brown), THE WORLD'S GREATEST CHOCOLATE-COVERED PORK CHOPS (middle grade; Disney Hyperion); PLAYING JULIET (middle grade; Sky Pony/Sky Horse), and THE SKY BETWEEN YOU AND ME
(YA novel in verse; Sourcebooks).
Her great passions in life are travel and good food—and good books, of course! While she’s always cultivating new obsessions, her latest are photography and sailing.
