Publishing Agent Heather Flaherty grew up in Massachusetts, between Boston and the Cape, and started working in New York City as a playwright during college.

In middle grade, she wants honest, stark, dark, historical, contemporary, coming-of-age, witness stories about adult issues, dealing-with-difficulty, and anything that makes her want to hold the narrator’s hand.
