Britta joined the agency in April 2002 after spending five years working at an advertising agency uptown. “I enjoyed the creative energy of advertising, but books have always been my true love.” As a teenager, these “true loves” included Kerouac’s Dean Moriarty, Henry Miller and Hemingway in all his disguises. At one point her friends forbade her to read any more of Anais Nin’s diaries. Fortunately, while completing an MFA in Writing at Vermont College, she discovered that living people write wonderful books, too. Britta's primary areas of interest include lifestyle (relationships, parenting & families, health mind & body), arts & entertainment, business & personal finance (especially when geared toward those in their 20's and 30's) and fiction that rides the line between literary and commercial.
