Elizabeth Copps began her publishing career in 2010 as an intern for Maria Carvainis Agency, Inc. after graduating from Florida State University with a BA in English Literature. She was thrilled to join the agency full-time in 2011 as the new literary assistant. Two years later, she was offered the position of literary associate and is incredibly excited to build her own list of authors.
Elizabeth considers herself an eclectic reader, but she is particularly interested in gritty thrillers and mysteries, literary, multicultural and contemporary fiction, women’s fiction, young adult and young adult crossover, memoir and romantic suspense. She appreciates rich and believable characters who immediately suck readers into their world, and she is captivated by a startling plot twist. Her favorite authors include, John Boyne, Chris Cleave, Gillian Flynn, John Greene, Joanne Harris, Jhumpa Lahiri, Dennis Lehane, Stephen King, Daphne du Maurier, and Carlos Ruiz Zafón.
MCA’s clients include Mary Balogh, Sandra Brown, Candace Camp, Cindy Gerard, Kristin Higgins, Will Thomas, and Laura Wright among others.
