Kyra (pronounced with a long i, as in ice) Nelson. She’s been interning with A+B Works Literary Agency for about two years, and she’s read a ton of query letters. She’s learned a lot in her time at the agency, and she wants to pass some of her knowledge on.

Kyra’s currently pursuing her MA in linguistics. She has a BA in English language from Brigham Young University with minors in editing and English.

She’s a compulsive thing-doer. She likes to be busy, whether it’s reading, writing, watching sports, playing violin, baking cookies, traveling, decorating cakes, or just goofing off with friends. She loves adventure, even if it’s a small adventure like roasting Starbursts over the open flame of her stove top.
