The Transatlantic Agency is pleased to announce the appointment of two new Associate Agents, effective immediately.
Stephanie Sinclair has been working with Transatlantic since 2012 as Samantha Haywood’s full-time assistant. Under Samantha’s mentorship, Stephanie has begun building her own client list, primarily in the areas of literary fiction, upmarket women’s fiction, narrative non-fiction, investigative journalism and true crime. She will maintain the post of Samantha’s assistant and is also co-representing (with Samantha) three new clients: Justin Rutledge, Myles Estey, and Daniel Karasik.
Stephanie is a graduate of the Publishing Program at Ryerson University, the Creative Writing program at the Humber School for Writers and the Randolph Academy for the Performing Arts. For many years, authors, journalists and theatre writers have benefited from Stephanie’s uniquely attuned and effective advice in her work as an award-nominated freelance editor.
Amy Tompkins has worked in publishing since 2002, and has been Transatlantic’s contracts consultant since 2007. In addition to continuing her duties in that role, Amy will represent both adult and children’s authors, and is already the international rights agent for two corporate clients – Orca Book Publishers Ltd. and Islandport Press.
Amy was previously the contracts manager at Westwood Creative Artists, is a graduate of the Publishing Program at Ryerson University, and has an MA in English Language and Literature. Her areas of interest include literary, historical, and women’s fiction (including smart romance), narrative non-fiction, and quirky or original how-to books. On the children’s side, she is looking for authors of early readers, middle-grade, young adult, and new adult projects.
