Please send queries and submissions in the body of the e-mail to:


No attachments are opened.

All submissions should include a query letter, with no more than twenty-five pages of sample material. Please double space all material except your query letter.

We represent a wide range of nonfiction, including narrative nonfiction, history, natural history, memoir, food and wine books, travel, social issues, intelligent self-help, and medical/health. In fiction, we represent literary and commercial fiction. We are not currently accepting science fiction, fantasy, or horror submissions.

We are a small independent agency and are no longer able to respond to the volume of queries and submissions we receive. If we are interested in seeing more material we will contact you within four to six weeks. If you don’t hear from us within four to six weeks, we, unfortunately, didn’t think your project or novel was a good fit for the agency.
