Sanford J. Greenburger Associates is one of the oldest and most well-established literary agencies in the United States. Founded in 1932 by Sanford J. Greenburger, the agency initially specialized in representing European writers and publishers in the United States and internationally. Among the agency’s earliest clients were Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir, Franz Kafka, and Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.

The current era for Greenburger Associates began in 1972, when Francis Greenburger assumed management of the business his parents founded. The agency was converted into an agents’ collaborative, which today comprises eight senior agents, three associate agents, and an international rights department, and includes an affiliated business, the Nicholas Ellison Agency. 

Among the scores of authors who got their start at Greenburger Associates are James Patterson, Nicholas Sparks, Dave Eggers, Nelson DeMille, and Daniel Amen, M.D.  Greenburger Associates now represents such global bestselling authors and artists as Dan Brown Robin Preiss Glasser, and Christopher Moore. The agency represents fiction, nonfiction, genre books, and original ebooks; author and artists of children’s books; and a small number of poets and essayists.

Chelsea Lindman recently joined Greenburger Associates as a literary agent, and like all new agents, she needs authors.  Her primary interests include playful literary fiction, upmarket crime fiction, and forward thinking or boundary-pushing nonfiction. 

Chelsea also represents a select list of children’s book authors whose stories have an emphasis on voice-driven narratives.  Most importantly, Chelsea is interested in working with clients that are looking to build a lasting relationship.

Chelsea was previously with the agency as the Director of Foreign Rights for The Nicholas Ellison Agency, a division within Sanford J. Greenburger Associates, where she worked with international publishers to nurture and develop audiences abroad for the agency’s bestselling authors such as Nelson DeMille, Sarah Dunn, Jeff Lindsay, Christopher Moore, and Alan Weisman, as well as several debut authors. Chelsea began her publishing career as an editor at Europa Editions, and is a graduate of University of California, Santa Barbara.
