Get to Know an Agent in Attendance: Andy Ross of Andy Ross Agency

Screen Shot 2016-05-01 at 10.55.19 PM.pngAndy Ross is the founding literary agent of Andy Ross Agency.

He represents a wide range of subjects, including: narrative non-fiction, science, journalism, history, current affairs, contemporary culture, religion, children’s books and  commercial and literary fiction.

He is eager to work with projects in most genres as long as the subject or its treatment is smart, original, and will appeal to a wide readership. In narrative nonfiction, he looks for writing with a strong voice and robust narrative arc. Andy likes books that tell a big story about culture and society by authors with the authority to write about their subject.

For literary, commercial, and children’s fiction, Andy has only one requirement–a simple one–that the writing reveal the terrain of that vast and unexplored country, the human heart.
