books aren’t just what we do, they’re who we are

Welcome Kari Sutherland!

You may have already seen this good news in Publishers Weekly or on Publishers Marketplace, but I am so thrilled to officially welcome Kari Sutherland to the KT Literary team! Kari began on the editorial side of publishing, first at Disney Press, then HarperCollins Children’s Books–where she had the honor of editing many talented authors, including Victoria Aveyard and Sara Shepard. Middle grade and YA are at the heart of her list, but she also represents picture books, chapter books, graphic novels, and upmarket fiction. She graduated from Williams College with a B.A. in English and Psychology and received a Masters in Forensic Psychology from John Jay College of Criminal Justice before pivoting back to her first love–books. With her editorial insight and experience with the entire publishing process, Kari is passionate about helping to polish each manuscript and equip her clients for success.

We’re so excited to have Kari and her clients join us! You can query her via QueryManager or say hello via Twitter!
