Welcome Barbara Poelle, an agent with the Irene Goodman Literary agency.
Tell us about your agency and yourself.
The Irene Goodman Literary Agency has been in business for nearly 30 years with the agents representing authors in a wide range of genres including but certainly not limited to romance, women’s fiction, thrillers, mysteries, urban fiction and fantasy, commercial and literary fiction, and a wide variety of non-fiction ranging from social commentary and family issues to humor. I am particularly driven when handling thrillers, mysteries, romance (historicals ONLY), literary and commercial fiction, platform driven non-fiction, and the rare memoir.
