Kimberley Cameron & Associates
1550 Tiburon Blvd.
#704
Tiburon, CA 94920

Update August 4, 2013:
Dear Brian,
Wanted to send a quick note to let you know that our submission email has changed. We are no longer using info@kimberleycameron.com and plan to retire it soon. Instead we request that authors email each agent at their personal KC&A email. Can you update your blog post?
Thank you so much!
Cordially,
Kimberley Cameron
President,
Kimberley Cameron & Associates

Kimberley Cameron is the agency’s president. She is looking for outstanding writing in any field, particularly writing that touches the heart and makes us feel something. She’s been successful with many different genres and loves the thrill of securing a publishing contract for debut authors. She represents botch fiction and nonfiction, but no romance, children’s books or screenplays.

Include a one-page synopsis and the first 50 pages in word attachments. For nonfiction, please submit a well-crafted proposal and the first three chapters of your work.


Elizabeth Kracht joined the agency in the fall of 2010. In fiction, she represents literary, commercial, women’s thrillers, mysteries and YA with crossover appeal. She is intrigued by untrustworthy narrators, tragic tales of class and circumstances, and identifies with flawed and query yet sterling characters.

In nonfiction, she particularly loves voice-driven or adventure-driven memoir, and other nonfiction projects that contribute to the well-being of the self or other {whatever that means}, in addition to niche projects that fill holes in the market, offer a fresh approach or make her laugh. She also has a soft spot for heroic nonfiction pet stories.

Query Elizabeth at liz@kimberleycameron.com 
Include a one-page synopsis and the first 50 pages in word attachments. For nonfiction, please submit a well-crafted proposal and the first three chapters of your work.


Pooja Menon joined the agency in the fall of 2011 as in intern. She blogs at http://eatlovewritelive.wordpress.com/

Pooja is actively seeking to build her client list. She’s looking for compelling writing with an easy flow, a timely pacing, a unique perspective, and strong voices. She enjoys literary, commercial, historical, and upmarket women’s fiction; but is particularly drawn to stories with an international flavor, vibrant characters, multicultural themes, and lush settings. 

She has a soft spot for fantasy novels that are original and layered, with worlds as real and alive as the ones created by Philip Pullman and J.K. Rowling. In YA, she’s eagerly looking for submissions across all genres (contemporary, adventure, realist, paranormal romance, gothic, horror, historical, steampunk, dystopian, magical realism, urban fantasy, and new age).

Pooja is also acquiring nonfiction adventure and travel memoirs, journalism and human interest stories, and self-help books addressing relationships and the human psychology from a fresh perspective. It is imperative for nonfiction writers to have a strong platform. If you do not have one, please build on that before sending your query letter.

Include a one-page synopsis and the first 50 pages in word attachments. For nonfiction, please submit a well-crafted proposal and the first three chapters of your work.


Ethan Vaughan joined Kimberley Cameron & Associates as an intern in the fall or 2011 after completing a summer internship with Folio Literary Management. Ethan is looking for fantasy and science fiction manuscripts with believable characters and unique premises.

Ethan is also looking for literary fiction, horror, historical fiction, accessible historical nonfiction (Cleopatra: A Life, for example), well done political literature and women’s fiction.

Query Ethan at Ethan@kimberleycameron.com
