Agency: The Frances Goldin Literary Agency, Inc.

The Goldin Agency is one of New York's finest, small boutique agencies specializing in upmarket fiction and nonfiction. Their clients range from Barbara Kingsolver, Dorothy Allison and Adrienne Rich to the Pultizer-Prize winning authors of GOTHAM.

Ms. Geiger also represents both commercial adult fiction and non-fiction and has very broad interests, with extra attention for cutting-edge issues. Special attention is given to social sciences, history, politics, religion, and women's issues, and writers who are journalists or academics looking to write their first trade book for a general audience.

In fiction, she represents the Anthony-winning mother/daughter writing team PJ Tracy (Monkeewrench), and Agatha winners Donna Andrews and Earlene Fowler, among many others.
