SHIRA HOFFMAN began her career in publishing as an intern at Tor Books and started working at McIntosh & Otis, Inc. in 2007. In 2013 she took over as M&O’s Director of Subsidiary Rights. Shira is currently developing her own list and is interested in a broad range of fiction and non-fiction in the adult market as well as an occasional YA title.
She is looking for women’s fiction, romance, and commercial memoir with strong characters who you can invest in and compelling original voices.
She’s a sucker for a cowboy or a man in uniform. Second chance romance and secrets from the past are tropes she loves and can read again and again. She’s also interested in books that have strong mystery or suspense elements and fast pacing.
Ultimately, the most important qualities she’s looking for in romance and women’s fiction is a strong voice and the ability to fall in love alongside the characters. Not currently accepting pitches for historical romance or time travel romance.
