Katelyn Uplinger

Katelyn Uplinger serves as a literary agent with the D4EO Literary Agency.

After several years of editorial work and positions at multiple literary agencies including Folio Literary Management and Inklings Literary, I joined D4EO Literary as an agent in 2018.

I enjoy books with unforgettable stories and characters. I search for books that can transport me to another time or place or teach me something new.

I love when a book can grip my emotions enough to make me laugh or cry. While I enjoy happy endings, I don’t shy away from dark stories or tragic romances.

What I Want to Represent

I’m looking for talented writers in these genres in adult and young adult fiction:

  • Nonfiction (historical and cultural topics)
  • Fantasy & science fiction (and all speculative fiction)
  • Horror
  • Historical fiction (in all sub-genres)
  • Thriller
  • Romance (I tend to gravitate toward historical romance)

What I Read

Some of the authors I enjoy include Philippa Gregory, C.W. Gortner, Alyssa Palombo, Naomi Novik, Hugh Howey, Madeline Miller, Holly Black, Charlie Holmberg, Sue Burke, Zoje Stage, and Mira Grant.
