Who Is Carl Hiassen’s Literary Agent?

According to Hiassen, most young writers need luck and some good breaks… and he’s had both. In college he helped a friend write two novels that were published. Later, working at The Herald, Hiassen and a reporter named Bill Montalbano wrote five chapters and an outline for a thriller that was set in the midst of Miami’s “cocaine wars” of the late 70s. Another friend of Hiassen’s recommended an agent, who passed them off to her assistant, who then got them a book contract.

Carl Hiassen’s book agent for adult fiction has been the same person for twenty years. Bill and Hiassen wrote three mystery thrillers together before Carl wrote his first solo novel called Tourist Season, published in 1986. One of Hiaasen’s most well-known novels, Strip Tease, became a major motion-picture in 1996 starring Demi Moore, and directed by Andrew Bergman.
