The tagline for what we do at Sasquatch is “cool stuff from here” and “here” extends from the Pacific Northwest into Alaska. I’m focusing on practical nonfiction in the categories of home, garden, craft, DIY, style, love and relationships, … Continue reading

In fiction, I am looking for dark suspense and psychological thrillers (no procedural thrillers, please) along the lines of Gone Girl. I love noir and crime fiction, especially anything that plays around with the genre and subverts expectations. I am interested primarily in narratives about smart, flawed, dangerous women of all kinds. Dream buys: The … Continue reading

Diana Finch, The Diana Finch Literary Agency

What I like to see are:  Books about the environment – but not just nature writing, also science, business, lifestyle issues, even YA fantasy!  Memoirs about difficult journeys, both literal and emotional.  Stories, both fiction and nonfiction, about sports, all sports.  A crime story by a man or a woman that Elmore Leonard or Joseph … Continue reading
