We give each of our clients, whether established international bestsellers or first-time authors working on their first book proposal, the same devoted attention, strong support, and wise guidance on all aspects of their careers. We are particularly interested in representing authors of journalism and narrative nonfiction, popular science, business, personal finance, biography and history, current affairs, politics, health and fitness, food and cooking, entertainment and pop culture (often based on popular Web sites or blogs), and quirky reference books. We do not represent fiction, stage plays, screenplays, poetry, or books for children or young adults.
