Get to Know an Agent in Attendance: Heather Cashman of Storm Literary

Screen Shot 2018-11-13 at 2.29.54 PM.pngHeather Cashman is a literary agent with Storm Literary.

At the 2020 KC workshop, Heather is taking pitches, and also teaching a class.

She is currently seeking middle grade or young adult, especially if it has a high concept and excellent voice. She’ll also take adult pitches at conferences and loves a good hook with complex plots and twists that she didn’t see coming. For adult I’d prefer not to get memoir, chick lit, or inspirational. I tend to prefer speculative and genre fiction but also get captivated by the occasional contemporary or romance.”

After working as a professional editor for Cornerstones Literary US/UK and managing Pitch Wars and #PitMad, Heather used to assist Stacy Cantor-Abrams at Entangled Publishing. Because of her diverse background working for agents, editors, published authors, and mentoring, Heather also freelance edits. In her free time, she loves road trips, kayaking, hiking, and of course, writing novels–always with a speculative element from her days working as a biochemist.
