Hi, I’m Kenzi! Welcome. Before you do anything else, grab a cup of tea or a glass of wine, light a candle that reminds you of your favorite book, and let’s get to know each other.
I’m an award-winning writer and literary agent with a passion for magic realism and mythology. A graduate of Taylor University’s professional writing and theatre programs, I joined Cyle Young Literary Elite in 2018 as an agent representing illustrators, author/illustrators, children’s books, and graphic novels (now expanding into YA and MG!!). If you’re looking to submit to me, check out my submissions guidelines page here. I’m especially interested in STEM topics, regional mythology, fairy tale retellings, or anything with a whimsical air.
My short story, “The Last Freedom,” was published in eBook and paperback by StoryShares in 2017. Check it out on Amazon! At the moment, I’m querying a mental-health representative fantasy series and working on beta edits for my Celtic magic realism novel, which has its background in the two semesters I spent in the Wicklow Mountains of Ireland studying mythology and Irish history.
When I’m not writing or answering my email, I spend most of my time watering my fairy garden, attending garden design classes, experimenting with little-known tea flavors (some of them grown and mixed myself!), or haunting renaissance fairs all summer long.
