startFrom the press release:

KT Literary, LLC., a Colorado-based firm representing such New York Times bestselling and acclaimed authors as Maureen Johnson, Stephanie Perkins, Matthew Cody, and Trish Doller, is pleased to announce it is expanding, adding a new agent and branching out to represent more genres to celebrate its seventh anniversary.

Effective immediately, Sara Megibow, a literary agent with nearly a decade of publishing experience — most recently with Megibow Literary and Nelson Literary Agency — is joining owner and agent Kate Schafer Testerman and associate agent Renee Nyen. The three are creating a Denver-based powerhouse that takes a hands-on approach to all aspects of an author’s publishing experience from editing through marketing and beyond. The agency represents authors writing middle grade through adult, in genres that range from fiction to science fiction, and romance to erotica.

Kate Schafer Testerman: After more than a dozen years working in publishing in New York City, Kate founded KT Literary in 2008, concentrating on middle grade and young adult fiction. Kate enjoys all aspects of working with her authors, offering personal service, and a surfeit of optimism. Her clients include New York Times bestsellers Maureen Johnson and Stephanie Perkins, acclaimed middle grade authors Matthew Cody and Ellen Booraem, and popular young adult authors Trish Doller and Amy Spalding, among others. She is a member of the AAR and SCBWI, and tweets as @DaphneUn.

Sara Megibow: For the last nine years, Sara has specialized in working with debut authors in middle grade, young adult, new adult, LGBTQ, romance, erotica, science fiction, and fantasy. She represents New York Times bestselling authors Roni Loren and Jason Hough and international bestselling authors Stefan Bachmann and Tiffany Reisz. Sara presents regularly at SCBWI and RWA events around the country and is active on twitter @SaraMegibow.

Renee Nyen: After several years in the editorial department at Random House’s Colorado division, Renee joined KT Literary in 2013. She loves digging into manuscripts and helping the author shape the best story possible. She can be found on Twitter as @Renee_Nyen.
