ABOUT THE AGENT:

Aiden Siobhan (they/them) graduated from UNC School of the Arts in 2023 with a Filmmaking BFA specializing in Screenwriting and Animation. Before becoming an agent, they interned at LDLA and were an Author Mentor Match mentee in 2022. When they’re not binge reading an LGBTQ+ YA novel, they work as the Art Director for two alternative newspapers, attend film festivals for their documentary projects, and go on road trips with their fiancé and dog.

AIDEN IS SEEKING:

Aiden loves any story that is diverse, heartfelt, beautifully written, and makes them stay up reading until 3 A.M. Send them your trope-filled, high-stakes, addicting novels that will hook them so well they’ll have to draw fan art (and they will)! They represent the following genres: Young Adult and Middle Grade fiction in all genres, Adult Fantasy, Science Fiction, Horror, and Romance.

“Across the board, I am looking for diverse stories told by folks that share the same identities as their characters. Send me books with the representation you wished you had as a child! I am looking for novels with high concepts, new twists on old tropes, clever voicey characters, and lush worlds I can escape into.”

Please visit their website for their in-depth manuscript wishlist to see if your novel would be a good fit.

HOW TO SUBMIT:

As always, please review the agency’s submission guidelines before you submit.
Aiden Siobhan also has their own guidelines (please review these as well before submitting — they provide clarification and may make the process less intimidating!)

Aiden currently only accepts queries via their Query Manager page.
