Erica Bauman is a graduate of Johns Hopkins University and has worked in the publishing industry for the last five years, most recently having joined Zachary Shuster Harmsworth in early 2015. She is currently focused on building her own list of clients, representing a wide range of authors across both children’s and adult fiction and nonfiction, and is a member of SCBWI.
In children’s, Erica represents both MG and YA fiction across a wide array of genres, as well as some nonfiction. For MG, she’d love to find quirky, funny stories and lovable misfits, as well as humorous horror and really unique magic. She’s a lover of YA genre fiction — especially sci-fi, fantasy, and historical fiction — and a bit of a mythology nut. Across all genres and age ranges, she’d like to work with and support more marginalized authors and stories that represent the wide range of humanity.
