Stefanie is an associate agent at the Jennifer de Chiara Literary Agency. She is also a book coach working exclusively with women writers of color. Stefanie is obsessed with learning and sharing knowledge, and treasures the endless love and excitement authors have for their work. She believes the most important characteristic a writer can have is persistence, and she adores boosting morale and motivating her authors to reach the elusive finish line. She works hard to infuse the writing process with joy and fun. Few things are better to her than helping an author gain confidence and reach their goal!
As a woman of color, Stefanie is personally invested in increasing representation in publishing, and is most interested in diverse stories with fresh perspectives. Any story that blends adventure and romance is her perfect cup of tea.
When she’s not adding books to her reading list at an unsustainable rate, you can usually find her in the great outdoors; exploring her multiple cultures through food; or in a totally unrelated daydream.
