Victoria Marini is a literary agent with Volume Five and part of the High Line Literary Collective. She began her career as a literary agent at Gelfman Schneider and ICM Partners before joining the Irene Goodman Agency in 2016. Originally from rural Pennsylvania, she moved to New York in 2003, and began her literary career as an assistant at Sterling Lord in 2007. She is interested in both Upmarket & Commercial Adult, Middle Grade, and Young Adult and fiction with compulsive hooks, strong plotting, and well-drawn characters. From Literary page-turners, to commercial suspense, to magical realism, whimsical adventure, edgy sci-fi & grounded fantasy, she is always looking for unforgettable off-the-page characters, high concepts, and unique voices. She is a sucker for quirk, mystery, small town hysteria, atmosphere, secrets, things that go bump in the night, a bit of charm, a twist of magic, or a dash of humor.
