Prior to coming to NLA, Angie worked in magazines, her last stint as Editor-in-Chief of a long-standing craft publication. As an active member of the Denver literary community, she has served as a board member for Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers, and she regularly teaches highly regarded writing and publishing workshops, including at Denver’s prestigious Lighthouse Writers Workshop. She is the author of two nonfiction books for writers: Do You Need a Literary Agent? and Query Craft. She began her career at NLA in 2011, where she has worked as a reader, contracts manager, and royalties auditor. Currently, she devotes 100% of her time to literary development. In partnership with the agents, she edits client material, prepping and polishing manuscripts before they go out on submission. She also works one-on-one with clients to develop new story ideas and directions, and she screens manuscripts requested by the agent team. When not working, she writes a little fiction of her own (mostly of the dark variety), waits on her cat (an adorable tabby named Pluma), feeds her neighborhood crows, and enjoys the fruits (and rums) of her husband’s in-home tiki bar.
