Dystel & Goderich was founded in 1994 by Jane Dystel, who has been in publishing for over 30 years. The agency prides itself on taking query letters from unknown writers very seriously. “As a matter of fact,” says Jane Dystel, “we have discovered many of our most talented authors in the slush pile. We read everything that is sent to us, whether we decide to represent it or not.”

The newest member of the team is Ann Leslie Tuttle, and like all new agents, Ann needs authors.

Ann Leslie Tuttle started at DG&B September 5, 2017, after working for 20 years at Harlequin Books where she most recently was a Senior Editor.  At Harlequin, she was fortunate to work on an extensive and varied list of bestselling and award-winning titles in romance and women’s fiction.  She received her B.A. degree from the College of William and Mary and an M.A. from the University of Virginia. Finding and nurturing talented new writers has always been Ann Leslie’s passion. 

Ann is actively seeking all kinds of romance from contemporaries, historicals, and romantic suspense to paranormals and inspirationals.

Ann Leslie lives in New York City with her husband and young daughter, who is just discovering the magic of books and writing. Follow her on Twitter here.
