The Helen Heller Agency

The Helen Heller Agency

We are a full service boutique literary agency specializing in internationally successful front-list adult and young adult fiction and non-fiction, with clients at the top of the New York Times and London Sunday Times lists. As a boutique agency, we are proud to be able to maintain strong relationships and work closely with our authors at all stages of the publishing process.

Since 1988 we have built our reputation as an internationally respected agency on the belief that our clients, and their concerns, are paramount. There is more to being a literary agent than merely ‘sealing the deal’, and we pride ourselves on our experience in working editorially with our authors when necessary before taking them to market — a process that can make the difference between just any offer, and a terrific offer!

We welcome email submissions as per our Submissions Guidelines; no snail mail, drop-in or phone queries please.
