Agents on the Move

If you're looking for a literary agent, it can be a bit frustrating. You hear of one you'd like to query, but then you can't find them. Agents tend to move around. Some stay with the same agency their whole career. Others don't. New agents join. Some retire.

Here's some information on agents (on the move) that you might find helpful.

Maria Ribas and Paul Lamb have joined the Howard Morhaim Literary agency as literary agents. Ribas was an associate editor at Adams Media and will continue to focus on cookbooks, self-help, health, diet, parenting, and humor. Lamb was most recently senior marketing manager at Viking, and will focus on representing non-fiction in the areas of business, memoir, political science, sociology and sports, as well as crime, mystery and literary fiction.

Jana Burson has launched The Burson Agency, a literary agency and speakers bureau. She had been an editor for the FaithWords and Center Street imprints of Hachette Book Group and before then, the imprints' director of publicity.

Dr. James Lance has joined WordWise Media Service as a literary agent. He was an acquisitions editor for Kumarian Press. He'll focus on scholarly but reader-friendly books in international relations, environmental science and policy, anthropology, economics, history, public health, cultural studies, public administration, US foreign policy, and philanthropy.

Michelle Richter is joining Foreword Literary as an associate agent. She has been an editor at St. Martin's. She is planning to represent a broad selection of fiction, and nonfiction focused on fashion, film, television, science, medicine, sociology/social trends, and economics for trade audiences.
