About Andy Ross
I opened my literary agency in January, 2008. Prior to that, I was the owner of the legendary Cody’s Books in Berkeley, California for 30 years. The agency represents books in a wide range of subjects including: narrative non-fiction, science, journalism, history, religion, children’s books, young adult fiction, literary fiction, and cooking.
I am eager to represent projects in most genres as long as the subject or its treatment is smart, original, and will appeal to a wide readership. In narrative non-fiction I look for writing with a strong voice and robust narrative arc. I like history, science, journalism, and books that tell a big story about culture and society by authors with the authority to write about their subject. I am also seeking projects in all areas by scholars who are at the top of their field and who are committed to writing in style and content for a general audience.
For literary, commercial, and children’s fiction, I have only one requirement — a simple one — that the writing reveal the terrain of that vast and unexplored country, the human heart.
I am a member of the Association of Author Representatives (AAR).
