About Pete



...a literary agent at Park & Fine Literary and Media, where I represent middle grade and young adult fiction. Prior to working at Park & Fine (formerly Park Literary & Media), I worked at Floren Shieh Productions, a literary consultancy that helped production entities find books to develop into movies or TV shows. I continue to love high concept, cinematic stories, as well as literary novels with a great voice and a strong emotional hook. Some of the clients on my list include Soman Chainani (New York Times bestselling author of the School for Good and Evil series, soon to be a movie with Roth-Kirschenbaum producing), Sarah Holland (New York Times bestselling author author of the EVERLESS duology), Julia Drake (author of the recently-released THE LAST TRUE POETS OF THE SEA, which has received 5 starred reviews to-date), Brenda Drake (New York Times bestselling author of the LIBRARY JUMPERS series), Lindsay Cummings (New York Times bestselling author of the ZENITH duology), Crystal Smith (author of the BLOODLEAF series, in development with Cavalry Media), and Amélie Wen Zhao (author of forthcoming BLOOD HEIR series), among others. When I’m not reading my clients' incredible manuscripts or searching for new writers I can partner with, you can often find me sneaking to the beach in the Rockaways, swimming laps at the city pool, attempting to keep the plants alive on my patio, or with my husband and our friends playing Splendor or watching a Studio Ghibli movie.
