I represent new and established authors of non-fiction. I'm actively seeking compelling narrative non-fiction. My other areas of interest include: computers and technology, popular science, natural history, current events, health and fitness, photography and design, business and personal finance, travel, and books of western regional interest. I do not handle fiction, poetry, or children's books.
Prior to founding Fresh Books in 2005, I was an agent with Waterside Productions, where I sold more than 1000 books.
Before joining Waterside in 1989, I worked as a coffee jerk, cab driver, and book clerk and buyer at the famed Boulder Bookstore in Boulder, Colorado.
I hold a B.A. in Creative Writing and Literature from U.C. Santa Cruz (1985), and studied playwriting and dramaturgy in the Professional Theatre Training Program at U.C. San Diego.
I also represent some of my clients for corporate writing gigs, white papers, online training and dvds. I try to keep you up to date with client news and links to news of note from the publishing industry at large.
