Stephanie Rostan has been an agent at Levine Greenberg for 11 years, following a stint as an editor at Bantam Dell and one as the Book Producer for iVillage.com. About two thirds of her clients are fiction, including New York Times Bestsellers Lisa Lutz, Gillian Flynn and Lesley Kagen as well as Jennie Shortridge, Wendy Wax, Michelle Gagnon, and Kris Radish. Unusual and vivid voices, genre-straddling stories and intense emotion (whether funny, creepy, warm or sad) – the things that make a book stick with you – are the things she finds most appealing. She loves nonfiction that solves a problem, working with the La Leche League, Amir Levine and Rachel Heller, Chris Santella and Jennifer Louden, among others, but has also worked on narrative nonfiction such as New York Times bestseller Miracle in the Andes by Nando Parrado.
