Secret Agent Unveiled: Kent D. Wolf


Huge thanks to the friendly, coolest-hair-ever Kent D. Wolf of Lippincott, Massie, McQuilkin.

Kent's Bio:

KENT D. WOLF began his publishing career in 1997 at Dalkey Archive Press. He then moved to Harcourt Trade Publishers where he headed the Subsidiary Rights Department, handling rights sales for many acclaimed authors, including Nobel Prize winners Octavio Paz, Günter Grass, and Jose Saramago and novelists Umberto Eco, Yann Martel, and Michel Faber. Kent represents a number of New York Times bestselling authors and is on the lookout for literary fiction, upmarket women's fiction, memoir, pop culture, all types of narrative nonfiction, and select YA/MG. He is a member of the Association of Authors' Representatives and PEN.

What Kent's looking for:

"I'm in the market for voice-driven YA, genre-bending debuts, and dark fiction that pushes buttons."

Winners forthcoming!

  2. Is it wrong to want to send a query to him just because he's cute?

  4. LOL Lanette! Pretty sure that might be frowned upon. ;)

  6. Looks like my entry, #37, was the only one Kent didn't comment on. He must have missed it?

  7. Megan -- Probably Blogger ate the comment (it does that sometimes). I will let Kent know!

  8. Megan -- Apparently Kent goofed and left your critique under his real name. So you'll find it there! LOL
