Dunow, Carlson & Lerner Literary Agency

Dunow, Carlson & Lerner is a mid-size, full service agency offering representation in all areas of the publishing marketplace, including foreign, film, audio and digital. Collectively, we bring over fifty years of publishing experience to our company. The agency represents literary and commercial fiction, narrative nonfiction, memoir, popular culture and young adult fiction and we enjoy a strong reputation in the industry for high quality books and strong publisher relationships.

I began my career in publishing as an intern at the Wendy Weil Agency, while studying creative writing at Sarah Lawrence College. I worked at the Markson Thoma Agency for nearly 10 years, as the director of foreign rights and an agent. I primarily work with fiction -- adult, middle grade and YA -- and I'm especially interested in dark, literary suspense and thrillers. I have a strong editorial eye, and I'm on the lookout for writing that immediately draws me in, and stories that stick with me long after I'm finished reading.
