Marisa Zeppieri is a literary agent with the Strachan Literary Agency. After 12 years as a health and food journalist and editor, she followed her love for books and began ghostwriting for a NYC publishing house, in addition to interning at a literary agency.
Her passion for books is only trumped by her love for authors who want to share their life-changing messages with the world. Marisa is currently seeking to champion new talent who create memorable characters with unforgettable words, and she has a soft spot for writers in marginalized communities and persons with disabilities.
She is particularly interested in finding nonfiction authors to build her client list and is only taking on a limited amount of fiction.
Nonfiction interests: Memoir, narrative nonfiction, investigative journalism, platform-driven nonfiction, diet and health, Christian spirituality, inspirational, food and cookbooks, self-help, advice, and humor.
Fiction interests: Adult fiction (commercial women’s fiction, upmarket fiction, apocalyptic, thrillers, fantasy) and upper YA.
Marisa is not seeking historical romance, erotica, or poetry.
