From Erma Bombeck and Phil Caputo to David Baldacci, Aaron's vision has always encompassed a wide range of literary tastes. Mainstream and literary fiction, thrillers and narrative non-fiction are all represented on our shelves, including bestsellers by Robert James Waller, Johanna Lindsey, Greg Iles, Harlan Coben, and Robert Crais. We are proud to maintain our reputation as a full-service, “hands on“ agency representing a select group of clients. Highly respected by writers, editors and publishers alike, the Aaron Priest Agency has earned its superior reputation through its commitment to talented authors and the successful management of their careers.
Melissa Edwards is the newest agent to join the Aaron Priest Literary Agency. She is interested in international thrillers with likeable and arresting protagonists, light-hearted women's fiction and YA, female-driven (possibly small-town) suspense, and completely immersive fantasy. Ultimately, Melissa is looking for a book that will keep her glued to the couch all day and night, and continue to occupy her thoughts for weeks later.
