Lesley Sabga is a literary agent with The Seymour Agency. She has worked as an editorial assistant and freelancer for multiple publishing houses such as Entangled, Jolly Fish Press and Flux Books, as well as Sourcebooks. She’s also been working for The Seymour Agency since 2014.
Starting out as an eager intern, she worked her way up to being a literary assistant, and in the fall of 2017, Lesley became an agent with The Seymour Agency. Lesley is a member of RWA and AAR.
Lesley loves intricate and vivid world-building and character-driven plots. She is acquiring MG, YA, and Adult fantasy, and she is always down to read dark and twisty suspense or thriller featuring strong, female protagonists. She also loves a classic happily-ever-after romance or curling up with a good mystery. She also has her eye out for book club fiction and women’s fiction. Always open to #ownvoices and diversity, Lesley is actively looking for marginalized authors to bring into the literary world.
When she is not rescuing animals or searching for her next debut author, Lesley is a constant occupant at local bookstores in Colorado Springs and is a self-proclaimed coffee aficionado.
