Mike joined Dystel, Goderich & Bourret after completing a foreign rights internship at Sterling Lord Literistic. Before pursuing a career in publishing, Mike studied at Colgate University and graduated with a degree in political science and the intention to work in government. He interned with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, but soon realized his interests and passions were better suited to a career in the publishing industry. After Colgate, Mike went on to gain a valuable education at the Columbia Publishing Course and discovered his passion for the agenting side of the business. He is interested in both literary and commercial fiction including thriller/suspense, mystery, sci-fi/fantasy, and book club or upmarket women’s fiction. Mike is also looking to acquire children’s books—YA, MG, and picture books—along with a wide range of narrative nonfiction including science, history, current events, and pop culture, but excluding memoirs.
