Leila Campoli joined Stonesong as an agent in March 2015, and like all new agents, she needs authors. Before joining the agency world, she worked closely with authors as an editor at Palgrave Macmillan in business, economics, finance, international relations, and politics. 

She prides herself on putting the concerns of her authors and the quality of their books above all else. She is passionate about representing books that break our established understanding of the world.

Leila represents prescriptive and narrative nonfiction projects in business, finance, investing, science, pop culture, and current events. Her ideal author has a strong platform, groundbreaking ideas, and unique style. She’s particularly interested in books that offer a window into remarkable lives and little known operations. No fiction, poetry, or screenplays.

Some of her previous titles include: Mark D. White’s The Illusion of Wellbeing, Gudrun Johnsen’s Bringing Down the Banking Industry, Deborah Gregory’s Unmasking Financial Psychopaths, and Matt Ragas and Ron Culp’s Business Essentials for Strategic Communicators.

Brian Henry will lead "How to Get Published" workshops in Windsor (for my American readers, that's just across the river from Detroit), on Sunday, May 31, with Martha Magor Webb of the Anne McDermid Agency (see here) and in Mississauga on Saturday, June 20, again with Martha Magor Webb (here).
