Stephany Evans Literary Agent
For the last twenty-five+ years, Stephany Evans has represented nonfiction writers in the areas of health and wellness, spirituality, cooking, memoir, popular science, and narrative nonfiction. She’s especially interested in women’s issues, environment/sustainability, and her particular passion – running (Stephany has run over a dozen marathons – including Boston, three times – and is now establishing her ultrarunning creds).
A book is a marvelous thing – there is no path down which it cannot lead! Stephany’s nonfiction authors have run the gamut, from “The Nation’s Leading Midwife” Ina May Gaskin (Ina May’s Guide to Childbirth; Bantam; with over 350,000 copies in print), sustainable farmer Forrest Pritchard (Gaining Ground, Lyons Press – a NYT bestseller), psychic medium Concetta Bertoldi (Do Dead People Watch You In The Shower?, Wm Morrow – a NYT bestseller), IACP award winner Stanley Ginsberg (The Rye Baker, WW Norton), and journalist Sam Quinones (Dreamland, Bloomsbury – a NYT bestseller and winner of the 2016 National Book Critics Circle Award for Nonfiction).
In fiction, Stephany represents a range of women’s fiction, from literary to romance (with numerous USA Today and NYT bestsellers), as well as mainstream mysteries and cozies, and the occasional literary/commercial novel not aimed at women. She has represented Emily Giffin (Something Borrowed), Molly Harper (Nice Girls Don’t Have Fangs), Rebecca Coleman (The Kingdom of Childhood), Jennifer Snow’s Brookhollow; and Colorado Ice contemporary romances, and Gretchen Archer’s, and Suzanne Chazin’s (respectively) Davis Way, and Jimmy Vega mystery series, Maia Chance’s cozy mysteries, and Jassy Mackenzie’s Jade de Jong thrillers. She is looking for fine, accomplished writing, whether the work is by a first-time or established author.
Stephany is a member of the Association of Authors’ Representatives (AAR), and the Agents Round Table, and has served as ghostwriter on seven published books in the categories of memoir and spirituality.
