Thao Le Literary Agent – This article about Literary Agent Thao Le and the Sandra Dijkstra Literary Agency is part of a series about literary agents and How to Find a Literary Agent. Publishing Agent Thao Le is a literary agent at the Dijkstra Agency since 2011. DO NOT QUERY THIS AGENT AT THIS TIME: Thao is not currently accepting unsolicited submissions.
Thao is actively looking for upper Middle Grade and YA, whether in prose or graphic novel format and across genres, that are clever, heartfelt, and commercial. In the Adult SFF realm, she’s a fan of contemporary fantasy, near future science fiction, and romantic fantasy. In romance, her favorite tropes are: hate-to-love/enemies-to-lovers, slow burn, forbidden/doomed romance, fake dating/marriage of convenience, grumpy/sunshine, mistaken identities, and she is a sucker for beta second male leads who steal the show (and hopefully the heroine’s heart!). If you can make her think of her favorite Asian Dramas then you’re on the right track!
In general, she’s a fan of high concepts that feel fresh and exciting. She’s especially drawn to character driven stories about family and friendships from the POV of diverse protagonists. She’s a fan of characters who are passionate about the arts, STEM, activism, and geeky fandoms. She’s a big reader of fanfic and love that style of bingeable writing. She adores stories with a touch of magic and whimsy, and is a lifelong fan of mythology and fairytales. She’s interested in all things gothic, cottagecore, and dark academia.
Though she has represented them in the past, she is currently NOT looking for picture book writers at the moment.
Thao’s clients include New York Times and Indie bestselling authors such as Ali Hazelwood, Dustin Thao, Sandhya Menon, Jessie Sima, Jessica Kim, and more…
