We are talent hunters and literary merchants. Our agency handles fiction and nonfiction for the adult, young adult, and children’s market. We represent literary and genre fiction. In nonfiction, we're drawn to books that try to make the world a better place – whether it’s a serious book about women in the Middle East or a satiric look at difficult teenagers.
We’re obsessed with words. We're keen to analyze a story arc and to figure out what drives a successful narrative. And as publishing businesspeople, we build marketing ideas to ensure our authors' greatest success in the marketplace. Most of all, we represent all aspects of a writer’s career.
Several of our authors have been #1 New York Times bestsellers; many are major international bestsellers. A good number have been optioned for film. We’ve successfully launched first-timers, and we've helped established writers take their careers to the next level.
