Best Literary Agent


We welcome queries from authors and illustrators, both for children and adult works. However, due to the large volume we receive daily, we are unable to personally respond to each one. If you do not hear from us within 2 weeks of submitting your query, regretfully we did not find your project to be a good fit for our current list. Alternatively, if we ask to see a manuscript, we generally accept only exclusive submissions.

We prefer to receive queries via email at  Please include a brief synopsis, a little information about yourself, including any social/media platform and/or marketing ideas you may have, but do not send any attachments as they will not be opened at this stage in the process.



Our foreign, film/tv and merchandising rights are managed by various co-agents.  Please email for any interest and we will make sure the appropriate agent responds.
