Regal Literary is a full-service agency with offices in New York and London, founded in 2002. Regal represents literary fiction, thrillers and crime fiction, serious narrative non-fiction, and now represents children's literature, too. Regal Literary is also a partner in The Culinary Cooperative, which represents chefs, restaurants, and food writers.
Michelle Andelman previously advised foreign publishers as a book scout at Franklin & Siegal, where she also agented with Lynn C. Franklin Associates. Prior to that, she got her start as an agent with Andrea Brown Literary Agency, where she worked for three years with debut talent such as Lauren Strasnick, Dia Reeves, and Emily Horner.
Michelle handles all categories of children's books, representing authors of middle-grade and Young Adult fiction, and author-illustrators of picture books and graphic novels. Her magnets are elegant, quirky voices, emotionally driven plots, and settings richly evoked or imagined.
