I am seeking agent representation for two fictional projects: Little Lenny Gets His Horns, a children's book, and Places in Which I May Have Died: A Trans Man's Quest to Reclaim His Life from the Spectral Realm, a novel.
Little Lenny Gets His Horns
Lenny has always been told that he’s a sheep, even though he’s never identified that way himself. Will Lenny stay lonely forever, or will he be brave enough to come out as a goat and be accepted by his barnyard friends?
Little Lenny Gets His Horns depicts Lenny’s journey of fearlessness and familial acceptance. When Lenny comes out as a goat to his mom and the rest of his barnyard friends, everyone welcomes him. The next day, a veterinarian comes to the farm to give Lenny his very own set of horns. The story has a happy ending in that Lenny gains the freedom to be himself, which is an important narrative for transgender kids everywhere.
Places in Which I May Have Died: A Trans Man's Quest to Reclaim His Life from the Spectral Realm
Places in Which I May Have Died: A Trans Man’s Quest to Reclaim His Life from the Spectral Realm is a semi-autofiction and magical realism novel about Theodore, a trans man, who has died of alcoholism. In ghost form, Theodore has one year left on earth to reverse the cause of his death. While Theodore is on the way to save himself, Places in Which I May Have Died flashes back to his life pre-transition. It is a narrative of redemption and wreckage, salvation and grace. In balancing events based on real life with situations that can only happen in pure magic, my novel diversifies the breadth of preexisting transgender literature and appeals to a wide audience.
