Lauren Spieller is a literary agent with the Triada US Literary Agency. She 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 finding diverse and underrepresented voices.
In MG, she’s drawn to heartfelt contemporaries, fantasy and sci fi, and exciting adventures. Some of her recent favorites are Rules for Stealing Stars, The Serpent’s Secret, The Science of Breakable Things, Hour of the Bees, and The Night Gardener. In YA, she’d love to find authentic teen voices in any and all genres. She is especially fond of fantasy, magical realism, and space operas; contemporary stories with a hook; and anything with a feminist or intersectional bent. A few favorites include Dumplin’, An Ember in the Ashes, The Hate You Give, Blood Water Paint, Six of Crows, The Raven Boys, and More Happy Than Not.
In Adult, Lauren is seeking upmarket and commercial fiction, particularly female-driven 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’s particularly hungry for pop and counter culture books, cocktail books with a twist/theme, or narrative nonfiction with a unique hook (if you’re the next Lindsey West, Roxanne Gay, or Lauren Duca, she wants to hear from you).
