Terra Chalberg and Rachel Sussman are hanging up their own shingle, launching Chalberg & Sussman. The pair met ten years ago while working at Simon & Schuster and their new agency will represent a wide range of literary and commercial fiction and nonfiction authors. The agency will also sell foreign rights to select titles from independent publishers Milkweed Editions and Ig Publishing.
Since leaving S&S, Chalberg has been an agent and foreign rights director at the Susan Golomb agency, while Sussman spent six years as an agent at Zachary Shuster Harmsworth.
