Bethesda, MD 20814

The Grosvenor Literary Agency specializes in “strong, serious, interesting nonfiction” and also represents “quality fiction on a selective basis.”

Berta Treitl is an attorney and literary agent and the newest member of the team at Grosvenor. Before joining Grosvenor,   Berta worked at another New York agency and in private legal practice. She is a member of the New York Bar, the District of Columbia Bar, and Washington Area Lawyers for the Arts.

Berta is selectively building her nonfiction list in three areas:
- science and technology
- current events, law and politics, biography, business and marketing
- art, design, cooking, health, and lifestyle. 

In fiction, Berta is interested in historical fiction and high-quality mysteries. Berta focuses on projects that present a counter intuitive or fresh viewpoint and that feature unusual communities, travel and foreign locales, and female main characters.

Query Berta at: berta@grosvenorlit.com
