Rebecca Friedman (formerly of Sterling Lord Literistic and Sanford Greenburger) started her own agency last year. As a new agency, Friedman Literary is actively building up its client list, and now Rachel Marks has joined the agency.

Rachel describes herself as “animal lover, Disney obsessed, a very avid reader, child at heart, nerd and all round happy person.” As the owner of Mark My Words, she has worked as a publicist for authors for the past three years. Rachel is not yet listed on the Friedman Literary web site, but she’s already signing up new authors (including science fiction writer Julia Crane).

Rachel represents young adult, fantasy, science fiction, new adult and romance. 

Rebecca Friedman, the founder of the agency is interested in commercial and literary fiction with a focus on literary novels of suspense, women’s fiction, contemporary romance, and young adult, as well as journalistic nonfiction and memoir. “Most of all," she says, "we are looking for great stories told in strong voices.”
