Alyssa Eisner Henkin began her career as an editor at Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers. She joined Trident as a literary agent in late 2006 because her favorite part of editing was deal-making and launching the careers of authors and illustrators. At Trident Alyssa represents all forms of literature for young people from board books through young adult. She is currently seeking more middle grade fiction and is perpetually drawn to humor, heart, and heroes and heroines who seek to make the world a better place. A lifelong history buff, Alyssa wants to represent more nonfiction from mold-breaking picture book biographies (if they are illustrated, all the better!) to YA memoirs that cross over to adult readers.
