DFWCon 2024

Meet Our Agents And Editors

One of the terrific benefits of attending DFWCon is getting the chance to talk and pitch to a variety of agents and editors. Read the bios of each by clicking on the photos below. Also check the links under each name for their respective agency, X/Twitter, and Manuscript Wish List to see what they’re looking for in fiction and nonfiction. Not every name will have a MWL link. In those cases, we’ve added what they are seeking in the bio. We’ll have more additions coming up. Stay tuned!

More To Come!

Steve Berry is the New York Times and #1 internationally bestselling author of twenty-three novels, including his latest, The Atlas Maneuver. Steve has also co-written two novels with Grant Blackwood, Red Star Falling, and The 9th Man, both Luke Daniels Adventures, and four novellas with M. J. Rose: The End of Forever, The House of Long Ago, The Lake of Learning, and The Museum of Mysteries, all Cassiopeia Vitt tales. 

History lies at the heart of every Steve Berry novel. It’s his passion, one he shares with his wife, Elizabeth, which led them to create History Matters, a foundation dedicated to historic preservation. 

He has been chosen both the Florida and Georgia Writer of the Year. He’s also an emeritus member of the Smithsonian Libraries Advisory Board. In 2010, a NPR survey named The Templar Legacy one of the top 100 thrillers ever written.

Steve was born and raised in Georgia, graduating from the Walter F. George School of Law at Mercer University. He was a trial lawyer for 30 years and held elective office for 14 of those years. He is a founding member of International Thriller Writers—a group of nearly 6,000 thriller writers from around the world—and served three years as its co-president.
