Ask a Literary Agent a Question About Anything

I’m a former book agent.

You can submit your question below.

And I actually want you to ask me your question.

I like talking about publishing.

And, I like helping authors.

In fact, I like it so much that I didn’t get upset once when an author
decided he would ask a literary agent (yours truly) a question
in the men’s room at a writers’ conference.

Not while I was washing
or drying my hands.


I was literally…
using the restroom.

So, you might as well
ask me your question, too.
