20+ in the industry
After 17 years on the editor/publisher side of the business, a role in which I published numerous successful and critically acclaimed titles across the nonfiction realm (memoir, music, sports, history, politics, etc.), I became an agent focusing in high-profile nonfiction. In 2019, I launched my agency, Kirkpatrick Literary LLC.
