Get to Know an Agent in Attendance: Vicky Weber of The Purcell Agency

Vicky Weber is a literary agent with The Purcell Agency.

Vicky is a former elementary school teacher turned children’s book author. In addition to her own publications, she runs At Home Author, a coaching and consulting company that teaches current and aspiring authors how to get their books published and marketed for success.

She is seeking:

1. PICTURE BOOKS: Anything heartfelt, educational, or lighthearted.
2. YOUNG ADULT: Fantasy, Mystery, Horror, Thriller, Suspense,
3. MIDDLE GRADE: Fantasy, Mystery, Magic
4. ADULT: Fantasy and Thrillers.

Vicky specializes in picture books. She wants to be dropped into the moment and experience the story alongside the characters.

Picture Book Wishlist:

  • Stories by underrepresented authors, both fiction and nonfiction. I especially love bilingual books.
  • Books that are educational (fiction or nonfiction) in a way that makes learning fun, especially if they are musical in some way.
  • Lighthearted, playful humor with heart.
  • Familiar storylines with a fresh twist or perspective
  • Rhyming stories must be exceptionally well written with perfect meter.

She also loves Young Adult and Fantasy.

ALWAYS SEEKING: Underrepresented authors, BIPOC, LGBTQ+

No erotica, romance, or memoirs please. Vicky is not the best fit for potty humor, graphic novels, or nonfiction adult books.
