Sydney Queen Detellis
Sydney Queen Detellis is a literary agent with WordLink, Incorporated. She is a graduate of Belmont University with a BA in English and has been obsessed with books ever since a librarian tried to ban her from the YA section in elementary school. Her own writing has received the Alfred Leland Crabb Award, the Ruby Treadway Award, and the Corinne Dale Award for Writing about Gender. She resides in Myrtle Beach with her husband and what some people say is too many cats.
Sydney is looking for beautiful prose and unrepeatable characters in many genres, including literary fiction, historical fiction, psychological thrillers, mysteries, speculative fiction, and books of the fantasy/sci-fi/slipstream variety. She is interested in adult novels and has a long-standing love for YA. Sydney is also seeking memoirs or essay collections that address overcoming trauma.
