Lynn Johnston Literary is, well, me, a literary agent in New York City representing mostly nonfiction.
I'm proud to represent books called "firebreathing" and "righteous" by the New York Times, "exuberant" by O: The Oprah Magazine and "a godsend" by Publishers Weekly.
Please check out the books I represent on the books page. My list includes New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestsellers, winner of the International Association of Culinary Professionals Cookbook Award, PEN finalist, and numerous "best of year" citations.
My authors are purposeful, sincere and sometimes controversial and ever determined. Among their many accolades are the Pulitzer Prize, George Polk Award, Peabody Award, GLAAD Media Award, Global Teaching Prize (finalist) and National Headliner Award. Here are photos of some of my authors in action.
