Hannigan Salky Getzler Agency was established on May 23, 2011. I am one of the three principals in HSG, alongside my former Russell & Volkening colleagues Jesseca Salky and Josh Getzler.
I represent all types of children's books from picture books through middle grade and YA. I also represent adult fiction and non-fiction books.
In children's books I am looking for picture books (no rhyming, please), middle grade and YA. While I do represent some fantasy, it really has to stand out from what is already on the market. In adult books, I am looking for literary and women's fiction and narrative non-fiction in the areas of science, food, women's and children's issues, photography and almost any kind of immersion journalism.
About me: I was lucky enough to find my way to agenting quickly after moving to NYC. Except for a year and a half in the Rolling Stone art & photo department and an equally brief stint at Glenn Horowitz Bookseller (a rare book and archive dealer specializing in 19th and 20th century literature), I had the pleasure of working at Russell & Volkening literary agency for 14 years.
