Erika Tsang- Avon
Executive Editor Erika Tsang had a bright idea when she joined Avon in 2002: let’s add paranormal romance to the list! She scooped up Lynsay Sands, Kerrelyn Sparks, and Jeaniene Frost while no one was looking, and now they appear regularly on the national bestsellers lists. But historicals are still her first love, and continues to work with such stars as Suzanne Enoch, Laura Lee Guhrke, and Beverly Jenkins. She would like to add more paranormal and historical romances to her list, as well as ethnic titles for Avon A.

Lucienne Diver- The Knight Agency
Lucienne Diver is a literary agent by day, a writer and journeyman jeweler by night. She started writing in her teens because talking back to the voices in her head wasn't socially acceptable—and she already had enough to deal with being a drama and AP English geek.
Her credits include short stories and a romantic comedy written under the pseudonym Kit Daniels. With her young adult novel Vamped, she's taking off the mask and stepping into the full glare of ... indirect sunlight. Because as her heroine would tell you, anything else is hazardous to your health, especially once you've been Vamped.
Lucy Childs- Aaron M. Priest Literary Agency
Lucy's been at the agency since 1995, having switched from professional actress to literary agent. Her clients include Frances Sherwood, Elizabeth Diamond, and Peter Charles Melman.
Interested in both commercial fiction (women's and mystery), and especially literary fiction (including historical), as well as narrative non-fiction. While willing to read just about anything as long as it's intelligent and well-written, Lucy isn't interested in seeing horror, fantasy,sci-fi, self-help, or poetry.
