Amy joined Dystel, Goderich & Bourret in 2015 after interning for them in 2014. At DG&B, she’s cultivating a wide-ranging list in literary and upmarket fiction, expert-driven narrative nonfiction, and select YA, with a special interest in voices from other cultures.
Her list includes titles such as The Last Story of Mina Lee by Nancy Jooyoun Kim (a Reese’s Book Club selection and NYT bestseller), The Forest of Stolen Girls by June Hur (a Junior Library Guild selection and Edgar Award nominee). Before diving into the world of publishing, she graduated from SUNY Geneseo with a degree in Creative Writing. Though she grew up upstate, she currently resides in Woodside, Queens.

Women are complex, thanks to various cultural and societal pressures, among other things, and I’ve always loved delving into their fascinating and intricate internal lives through stories. I think Asian women in particular have so much to offer in the way of story and as an adopted Asian woman myself, reading their stories lets me trace the shape and texture of women I might have known, could be, or want to know more about.
