Emmy Nordstrom Higdon

Assistant Agent

I am a bookseller at an independent book shop, a blogger at Books Beyond Binaries, and a member of the planning team for the Festival of Literary Diversity. I am a queer, trans, non-binary colonizer originally from Newfoundland, now based in Tkaronto (Toronto, Ontario). I keep busy with finishing up my PhD dissertation, spending time with my family (including adopted dogs and cats), embroidery, vegan cooking, and… obviously, a lot of reading. My author clients are known as the #SpineSquad! 


I grew up on fantasy novels and 90’s kidlit horror like Bunnicula and Goosebumps. I represent authors of upmarket and commercial fiction, and narrative nonfiction, across age ranges. I specialize in #OwnVoices and LGBTQ2S+ literature. My MSWL can be seen here.


Murder is my comfort read.

Interested in: 

Character-driven #OwnVoices projects that are devastating to put down.
