Sonali joined Folio Literary Management as an assistant in 2015 and is now building her own list, focusing on literary and upmarket fiction and narrative nonfiction. Across the board, she’s drawn to character-driven stories and is especially keen to work with underrepresented voices.

She earned her degree in English and Narrative Studies from the University of Southern California and began her career in publishing at Kaya, an independent press dedicated to publishing authors from the Asian diaspora. A fierce advocate of authors from marginalized communities, she’s keen to represent a diversity of voices.
