Naomi Davis

Literary Agent

Authors have always been Naomi Davis's superheroes. Growing up in Minnesota, they spent their elementary years pretending they were every character in every book they read. A life-long writer and author-fanatic, they have a mild to moderate obsession with slippers, and sing in two philharmonic choirs.

Working with authors and incredible colleagues at BookEnds Literary Agency has been a dream come true for Naomi.

Naomi has a passion for helping authors develop stakes, voice immersion, and tension to a story's highest possible potential, and often tweets about strategies for accomplishing those goals on their Twitter.

They seek dynamic, character-driven adult and young adult titles in fantasy, sci-fi, and romance, and represent select middle grade and picture book authors.

Naomi is particularly passionate about finding new fantasy and sci-fi settings with unique magical structures that surprise the reader and change the rules readers associate with those worlds. They write powerful, intricate characters in explosive SFF settings.

Naomi is nonbinary and happy with either pronoun, she/her or they/them.

Naomi Davis Wishlist

Naomi is currently looking for dynamic, character-driven adult titles in fantasy, science fiction. In science fiction, Naomi seeks stories that let the character development take priority over tech. The surprising time/relationship structure of the short story by Ted Chiang Story of Your Life and its counterpart film Arrival are examples of stories that catch Naomi off-guard and drag them relentlessly into the pages. In fantasy, Naomi seeks new fantasy settings with unique magical structures that surprise the reader and change the rules readers associate with those worlds. The Tethered Mage by Melissa Caruso is a strong example of exciting twists on the way magic is used and incorporated into the world using towering, global stakes. Naomi is not currently seeking dystopian or Tolkien-inspired worlds. In young adult, Naomi is always on the hunt for strong fantasy with edgy themes and exciting, realistic voices. Characters navigating conversations of disability, gender/sexuality, or race are always on their wishlist. Something Naomi would really love to find are YA Contemporary stories featuring powerful female relationships... romantic OR friendship, and how girls must learn to establish and enforce boundaries in all relationships. Trans and nonbinary characters always a plus. To send Naomi a query, go to
