Karen Solem is a literary agent and the president of Spencerhill Associates.
Karen represents a broad range of commercial fiction, and though a number of her clients have become New York Times bestsellers, she still takes great pleasure in discovering and working with new talent. With many years of publishing experience she brings an editorial as well as a business background to assist her clients.
Karen is looking for literary and commercial fiction and nonfiction, primarily for the adult market. She would love to read a richly detailed historical novel or historical suspense, a big sprawling family saga, or engrossing women’s fiction. She especially enjoys southern women’s fiction; and given her passion for animals, seeks any work involving dogs, horses or the natural world. She loves a great suspense novel and especially those with a psychological hook.
