Literary Manager, Martin Literary & Media Management
With a background in education and theology, Kristen served as a children's ministry director and women’s leader for many years before returning to her first love—writing the stories playing out in her head. She dove into the publishing world writing numerous articles and devotionals, as well as having five novels traditionally published and in the Romance and Young Adult genres. After managing an international blog and a publishing house’s social media feed, she found herself as an intern at the esteemed literary agency, Writers House, in the summer of 2022.
This landed her a job with Martin Literary Management where she now takes on author clients of her own. Stories are her thing and authors are her people. When not on her computer writing, editing, or emailing, or with her nose in a book, you can find her getting a little too loud from the sidelines of a kids’ basketball or football game. She’s also a recent transplant to rural Georgia where she thrives on jogging her forty acres terribly, drinking coffee while birdwatching, and daydreaming of new book characters, plotlines, and making her client’s dreams come true (which are her dreams as well).
“I've said this numerous times-- as an agent who receives hundreds of submissions a month, I can spot immediately those who attend conferences, are a part of writing groups and have critique partners. These submissions stand out in quality, substance, and presentation. The effort you as a writer are putting into your craft shows.”
