Our Values

We work with authors and their partners to envision decades-long careers that exceed industry expectations. We support authors as they explore new stories and ideas that start exciting conversations and movements, shepherd authors to global readerships, and help navigate blockbuster television and film careers.

We are committed to offering our authors a bespoke experience as they write for dynamic, loyal audiences who read, love, and share their books, year after year. Our agency is specifically designed and resourced to support each author’s unique and evolving creative interests, personal ambitions, and intellectual property.

Trust is the cornerstone of our representation. In an industry of long-standing relationships and competing interests, we have earned the trust of our authors and publishing partners by advising openly and honestly, building effective and collaborative teams, solving seemingly impossible challenges, and guiding our authors with integrity and compassion at every step of their careers.

We recognize that authors are expected to do more than ever: write a great book, market to readers, and shine in media and on tour, all while composing their next bestseller. Our team brings unparalleled expertise to these conversations, drawing from backgrounds in editorial, law, sales, branding, international rights, and television and film. Managing Partner Andrea Mai heads a team of eight Partners with deep experience across fiction, nonfiction, and children’s and young adult publishing.

We take seriously our role in moving culture forward. We believe all readers should see themselves on the bookshelf, and all writers should imagine themselves as authors. We view every employee, author, and book as an opportunity to expand our perspectives and advance conventional thinking. Our leadership values people as much as profits and a portion of the company budget is distributed annually to invest in employee-led initiatives within publishing.
