about the agency
Heather Jackson decided to jump over the desk to the agent side in 2016 after a highly successful career as a trade editor. In her 20+ years as an editor she acted as the creative midwife to multiple dozens of New York Times bestselling authors and titles, including: Tim Ferriss, Jillian Michaels, Suzanne Somers, Ron Fournier, Joy Bauer, Janine Driver, Rick Hanson, Dr. Robert C. Atkins, Dr. Joseph Mercola, Dr. Arthur Agatston, Dr. Nancy Snyderman, Dr. Susan Love, Dr. Alice D. Domar, Mallika Chopra, Barbara Sher, Martina Navratilova, Joe and Teresa Graedon, B. Smith and Dan Gasby, Howard Dully...among many others.
The selective client list she and we are cultivating has one unifying theme: to represent authors and books that make you want to press the pause button on everything else--ditch the screens, the duties, and close your office or bedroom door--to sit down and read for hours. Books that inform, inspire, entertain, surprise, help; books that make you cry, laugh, question, feel, and stretch. Books that make a personal difference and a more global one; yet always those that can ignite or shift a conversation. And, most importantly, books that can connect deeply and widely with masses of readers.
We specialize in commercial non-fiction and fiction, adult, YA, and children's. Areas of particular interest include: politics, popular psychology and science, history, memoir. We love a great and memorable character in women's fiction, thrillers, and romantic suspense. And we are always game for the quirky, unique, or deeply moving narrative that takes us in with brilliant writing and insights. We also represent top-tier authors in personal health and wellbeing, business, and self-help.
