Stefanie Rossitto is a literary agent with The Tobias Literary Agency. Originally from the German Alps, Steffi used to spend hours in quaint bookstores as a child. She went on to study English language, American literature and medieval history at Regensburg University and Edinburgh University. Her master’s thesis was based on a New York Times article on modern day ‘suburban’ novelists and how these authors shaped American suburban culture. After graduation, she moved to New York City where she gained publishing experience at three different literary agencies before moving on to Doubleday and Crown at Random House to explore the corporate side of the business. At Random House, she handled foreign and domestic rights for over five years and dealt with books and authors of every genre. Before coming to Tobias Literary Agency, she spent five years as a reader at Maria B. Campbell Associates evaluating German fiction and non-fiction for the US and international market. Steffi combines experience in agenting with corporate publishing and scouting.
Some books Steffi has recently enjoyed are: Kwan’s SEX AND VANITY, Gilbert’s CITY OF GIRLS, Allende’s A LONG PETAL OF THE SEA, Hilderbrand’s 28 SUMMERS. Other all time favorites are everything and anything Mary Balogh, Katherine Neville’s THE EIGHT, Diana J. Gabaldon’s OUTLANDER series, and Benedict Wells’ THE END OF LONELINESS.
Steffi is currently looking for historical fiction, and funny, witty, modern romances. She also enjoys anything and everything medieval as well as exciting historical romances and/or fiction based on real characters.
