In her eleventh year at The Rights Factory, Ali is the lead agent specializing in children’s literature. She represents a select list of authors with projects ranging from novelty, board books, picture books, early readers, chapter books, and graphic novels, to middle grade, young adult and new adult fiction and nonfiction.
She has the distinguished pleasure of representing literary stars among her international clients, including New York Times bestselling author Laura Nowlin (If He Had Been With Me and This Song is (Not) For You), Hugo-award-winning Emily Pohl-Weary (Not Your Ordinary Wolf Girl), and multi-award-nominated and Best Book-listed author Jo Treggiari (Blood Will Out and The Grey Sisters), among others.
Ali is living the dream of having a job she loves. In the wild, Ali can be seen typically reading a book (kidlit, of course), watching guilty pleasure TV, or instructing at the University of Toronto School of Continuing Studies Creative Writing Program.
Ali is currently only accepting submissions on referral.
