Kathleen Foxx: creator, editor, and literary agent in training.

Before dipping her toes into the literary world, Kat began a career in executive management in the hotel and tourism industry, but it left her creativity begging for attention. She spent time living and travelling in Brazil and around the U.S. as well as living in western and northern Canada for fifteen years before returning to her roots in southern Ontario in 2019. She’s since become a freelance fiction editor, host and producer of the #badasswriters podcast, audio editor for The Shit No One Tells You About Writing podcast, co-founder of #MoodPitch, and proofreader for Rising Action Publishing Co. Kat currently sits on two boards: one as Primary Co-chair of Editors Canada Hamilton-Halton and the other as International Rep for Crime Writers of Canada. She’s heavily engaged in the online writing community. In 2023, Kat joined The Rights Factory in Toronto in an Editorial Assistant role on her path to becoming a literary agent. She brings writing, editing, executive management, and administrative experience to her role, in addition to having a fabulous team of experienced agents behind her, furthering her ability to combine two of her biggest passions: storytelling and helping others succeed.

Other than the above-mentioned things (and obviously reading!), Kat enjoys travelling, photography, hiking, and spending summers in Ontario’s beautiful cottage country. She’s a proud mom of five kids. A romantic to her core, she considers herself mostly country with a bit of big city splash, and is convinced her soul resides somewhere in old world Europe. She’s studying European Portuguese.

Kat will begin building her list of exceptionally talented clients soon; stay tuned for details! She’s dedicated, professional, and an advocate and cheerleader for others. See her manuscript wish list for details on what categories, genres, and elements she’ll be seeking.

Kat keeps her editing and agenting clients separate to avoid a conflict of interest.

This means she’s unable to offer representation on a manuscript she’s been hired to edit, and she would never charge an author client to edit their manuscript.
