Welcome Michaela Grey to the Corvisiero Literary Agency

I’m super stoked to welcome Michaela Grey to #TeamCorvisiero. Her male/male erotic romance, BUTTONS certainly pushed all of mine in the best way with her deliciously kinky men exploring their relationship in the BDSM lifestyle while confronting their demons.

Welcome Michaela Grey!

Michaela Grey told stories to put herself to sleep since she was old enough to hold a conversation in her head. When she learned to write, she began putting those stories down on paper. She and her family reside in the Texas hill country with their cats, and she is perpetually on the hunt for peaceful writing time, which her four children make difficult to find.

Michaela started her career with Dreamspinner Press. Her first book is called Coffee Cake, published in May of 2015, and its sequel is Beignets, coming in October of 2015.

Queer romance is her happy place, and she delights in pushing her limits, testing her abilities and forcing herself to write scenarios she’s not familiar with. Angst is her lifeblood, and she wants you to know that your tears are delicious. (But don’t worry, she’ll always give you a happy ending.)

When she’s not writing, she’s knitting while watching TV or avoiding responsibilities on Tumblr, where she shamelessly ogles pretty people and tries to keep her cat off the keyboard.

Welcome Julia Rubin to the Corvisiero Literary Agency

I’m so excited to introduce you guys to my new client, Julia Lynn Rubin whose LGBTQ YA manuscript I fell in love with the minute I read the query. It’s a young adult gritty tale about best friends who come to terms with who they are in their California town and who they can be if they ever escape.

It’s a modern The Perks of Being a Wallflower meets The Outsiders with a raw and honest depiction of life as a high school sophomore in a town that is as vivid a character as the main characters, Jesse and Jack. I can talk about this book for hours and find nuances I’d missed on the back-to-back reads I did of the manuscript.


Welcome Julia Rubin!


Julia Lynn Rubin lives the writer’s life in Brooklyn, where she is currently pursuing an MFA in Writing for Children & Young Adults at The New School. She earned her BA in Anthropology & Film Studies from the University of Pittsburgh. She has been writing books, poems, and stories since first grade, and loves reading about everything from film analysis to psychology. Her short stories have appeared in the North American Review, The Lascaux Review, and Black Denim Lit, to name a few.

She is passionate about realism and diversity in teen literature, and hopes to one day own a French bulldog, a Boston terrier, or perhaps a mix of the two.
