Liza Dawson Associates Literary Agency
 
AGENTS & STAFF
Our agents represent a range of projects, but we have two things in common:
  • We understand the priorities and passions that motivate editors, publicists, sales directors, and marketing directors.
  • We consider each of our books to be an exciting kernel that can grow – into an international bestseller, into a movie, into a calendar, into a career. That's the power of a thrillingly told story, and that's what people expect from our submissions.
