Are you interested in working together?
Please read these guidelines. PLEASE NOTE: I'm currently closed to queries until Labor Day 2022.
If you would like me to consider your nonfiction book project, please use Query Tracker at https://querytracker.net/agent.php?agent=7293
Query Tracker is a service for writers looking to match with agents. After you find me on there, Query Tracker will tell you if I'm currently open or closed to submissions and if closed, when I expect to be open again.
Now, you may be wondering why wouldn't you just email your query to me directly rather than go through the hoops of another website. Let me explain. First, when you hit send, you will have confidence that I did indeed received your query and it didn't get caught in the ether or spam folder. Second, like many agents, I don't respond to email queries if the project isn't a match, whereas on Query Tracker I try to give a thumbs up or down to every project. Third, because it helps me manage the flow, I have cut my response time on Query Tracker so you know within a month, often days. There is zero cost for you to use Query Tracker. I ENCOURAGE YOU TO USE IT.
If you must email me directly, please note I only respond to queries that are of interest. If you don't hear from me in a month or so, please assume it's not a match.
You do not need to query or submit materials to me exclusively. If I request additional material from you, and you receive an offer of representation from another agent while I'm still reviewing it, I'd appreciate you letting me know.
Thank you for your interest in working with me.
I used to put submissions in a folder and send them to the publisher, by mail or messenger, but more often I'd drop them off after taking my kids to school. Now my kids are young adults and submissions are all electronic; yet, why do I still have too much paper? (The above image is not a stock photo..)
I am interested in the wide range of nonfiction, especially reported narrative, current events, business, science, health, and self-help. Please consider my recent deals and books as a loose guide to the kinds of projects that interest me but if you're unsure (and it's nonfiction), just try me. Please note the only fiction projects I consider are from current clients.
