Madelyn Burt joined Stonesong in May 2015. Since then, she has assisted on a variety of projects ranging from adult and children’s fiction to cookbooks to lifestyle and is now actively building her own list. She looks forward to establishing long-lasting, collaborative relationships with her authors, and is interested in both adult and children’s fiction, as well as historical nonfiction. She is drawn to stories that feature tight-knit groups and strong friendships, quests and heists, and unique voices. She is also particularly interested in fiction and nonfiction that is able to make a historical person or period accessible to the modern reader. Before entering the literary world, she earned her M.A. in Medieval Studies from Fordham University, with a focus on medieval England.
