Kristin’s News

Kristin NelsonPresident and Founding Literary Agent

Being an avid reader practically since birth, Kristin is equally happy reading a Pulitzer prize-winning literary novel for her book club as she is reading a sexy historical-romance. She established Nelson Literary Agency, LLC, in 2002 and over the last decade of her career has represented over thirty New York Times bestselling titles and many USA Today bestsellers. When she is not busy selling books, Kristin plays tennis and also enjoys playing bridge (where she is the youngest person in her club). She can also be found hiking in the mountains with her husband and their dog, Chutney.

Kristin is looking for a good story well told. How you tell that story doesn’t need to fit in a neat little category. For specifics, check out her examples on our Submission Guidelines page, follow the clear directions posted there, then submit a query directly to Kristin:
