Sophia M. Ramos (she/her) is a Cuban-American literary associate with New Leaf Literary & Media, who is based in South Florida. Prior to joining New Leaf, Sophia graduated from New York University with a Masters of Science in Publishing. Her career began in the international sphere, where she worked as a literary scout as well as in foreign rights and international sales. She continues her work at New Leaf with top author brands and has a wide-open list she’s ready to fill. She is a Diet Coke enthusiast and champion axe-thrower, but mostly enjoys hanging out with her dachshund, Sunny.


She represents commercial to upmarket genre-blending fiction for adult, YA and select middle-grade projects. Sophia loves intentional, lush prose combined with propulsive plots and thoughtfully complex family dynamics. She gravitates toward speculative books rooted in history or culture that have elements of romance, mystery, and horror.

“She strives to build a list that speaks to traditionally underrepresented voices and intersectional identities.”

Please visit Sophia’s manuscript wishlist for an in-depth description of what she’s looking for.
