New Canadian literary agent: Children's author & editor Harry Endrulat

Harry Endrulat has joined The Rights Factory as an associate agent. He has worked in children’s publishing for many years and is the author of the children’s book, A bear in War

Harry has also written numerous books for the Max & Ruby series (based on the popular show on Treehouse TV, which is based on the books by Rosemary Wells). As an editor, Harry has worked almost twenty years as both an in-house and freelance editor, for Fenn/Tundra, Harper Canada and Penguin Canada.

His email hasn’t yet been posted, but you can expect to reach him at:  
Or you can query him through The Rights Factory’s submission page here.

Associate agent Olga Filina is another newcomer at The Rights Factory. A graduate of Humber’s Creative Book Publishing Program, Olga spent over a decade as a sales manager and book buyer for both national and independent book store chains and two years as a literary assistant at The Cooke Agency.

While Olga will read anything that may set her book clubs on fire, she gravitates towards commercial and historical fiction, great genre fiction in the area of romance and mystery, nonfiction in the field of business, wellness, lifestyle and memoir and young adult and middle grade novels with memorable characters. In her spare time, Olga sits on library boards, organizes literary festivals and runs more book clubs than she can count.

Olga will be the guest speaker at the "How to Get Published" workshop, Saturday, May 4, in Barrie. Details here.
