Mary Cummings is a literary agent at Betsy Amster Literary Enterprises.
Mary represents fiction, literary nonfiction, and poetry for children and teens, from picture books to middle grade and young adult novels. She is particularly seeking picture books with love themes (love for parent, for another, for the world in general) and middle grade novels set in the real world of present day or near past. In ya novels she’s looking for a strong, but not romantic, bond between main characters. In literary nonfiction, her areas of interest include lyrically written science, arts, nature, mindfulness, and social awareness issues.
“I’ve sold to a broad range of publishing houses, including, among others: HarperCollins; Feiwel and Friends; Little, Brown; Abrams; Knopf; Henry Holt; Imprint; Holiday House; Farrar, Straus Children’s; Running Press Kids; Peter Pauper Press; WorthyKids; David Godine; Philomel; Viking; Random House Children’s; Walker; and Paula Wiseman Books/Simon & Schuster.”
