Established in 2008, The Grayhawk Agency is one of Asia's leading literary agencies. As a sub-agent, we represent over 200 international publishers and agents in Taiwan, China, Thailand, Indonesia, and Vietnam. We also represent Chinese-language writers in the international market and our authors are published in more than thirty countries around the world.

We are particularly drawn to fiction and have represented many #1 bestsellers, including Khaled Hosseini's THE KITE RUNNER, which has sold over 6 million copies in China. Equally adept at non-fiction and children's books, we have made six and seven-figure deals in these categories.

We attend all major book fairs including London Book Fair, Bologna, BEA, Taipei Book Fair, Seoul Book Fair, Beijing Book Fair, and Frankfurt Book Fair.
