Darhansoff & Verrill
236 West 26th Street
Suite 802
New York, NY 10001

Liz Darhansoff founded this agency in 1975 and was joined by Chuck Verrill in 1989. The agency has an impressive roster of well-known authors, including Annie Proulx, Stephen King, Neal Stephenson, and Arthur Golden. The agency has been most interested in literary fiction, narrative nonfiction, memoir, sophisticated suspense, and both fiction and nonfiction for younger readers. 

Now Catherine Luttinger has rejoined Darhansoff & Verrill as an agent (as of Feb 20). Catherine will be focusing primarily on science fiction and fantasy (all sub-genres). She is also interested in representing historical fiction, thrillers, horror, scientific nonfiction, and young adult books. Like all new agents, she’s in need of authors.
