Schliecher is the best-selling author of Is He Nuts?: Why a Gay Man Would Become a Member of the Church of Jesus Christ. As an in-demand public speaker, specializing in devotionals and social media marketing with the LDS church, Dennis’s relationship with many acquisition editors gives him a unique edge. Talcott Notch Literary Services LLC.

Dennis at age 17 in 1990, he appeared on seven talk shows, including “Larry King Live,” where he talked about being a victim of a brutal gay bashing that occurred in his public high school. Ratings for his appearance on “Sally Jessy Raphael,” aired January 19, 1990, were so high that they asked him to appear again. The bashing was reported in more than a dozen local and national newspapers and magazines.

Accepting Queries for the Following Genres:

Biography, Christian living, children’s books, church life, devotional, inspirational, LGBTQ, theology, bible study, reference, health, finance, fiction, self-help, psychology, grief, suffering, marriage, family, women’s, men’s, philosophy, history, social issues, parenting, clean romance, Latter-Day Saints, LDS, and Mormonism.

Dennis says “I am the first to specialize as an LDS literary agent, willing to work with all. I am looking for unique ideas from writers. As the market has changed, so has many of the demands on the author. Your project has to be more than an extended magazine article. It has to have something unique that will make the publisher jump at the chance to invest in you and your work.” Dennis goes on to explain that the “something” can be your platform, it can be the power of your idea, or it can be that your writing .” And if you can bring all three? I’m confident we can find you a publishing house. What will set you apart? What will establish you as a thought-leader in your genre?”
