Agents Like Us - Uwe Stender

Agents Like Us asks agents all their deep, dark agenting secrets. This week, Uwe Stender of TriadaUS Literary Agency is here! He's actively looking for YA, Middle Grade, Women's Fiction, Literary Fiction, and Mysteries. You can find his submission guidelines here, and him tweeting under @UweStender.

Uwe's answers are below in bold. Let us know what makes him like you in the comments!


Uwe on Agenting
  • When writers query me, I really wish to find strong writing.
  • My favorite part about being an agent is the "high" of discovery.
  • Rules and trends aside, what I really look for in a story is an amazing story.
  • Whenever I make a book deal, I go for a run, as my adrenaline skyrockets and I need to settle down again.
  • I really wish I saw more mysteries (adult, YA, middle grade) in the slush.

Uwe on Clients
  • My ideal client would be creative and passionate.
  • What I love most about my current clientele is their excitement for their writing.
  • What I want most for any client is for them to be happy in their life. 

Uwe on Life
  • If I weren't an agent, I'd probably be a music producer.
  • My favorite (non-client) book is right this second: “Eleanor and Park.”
  • Secretly, I'm terrified of hospitals.
  • My secret girlfriend is Alina S├╝ggeler (from the German band Frida Gold).
  • I have a total bromance with Bradley Cooper.
  • Sometimes, when no one is around, I ask my dog how her day was.
  • My favorite drink is a Brendan B. Gin and Tonic.
Next Week's Agent: Katie Grimm!
