Elizabeth Pomada and her partner Michael Larsen worked for six
major New York publishers before moving to San Francisco. They started
their agency in 1972 and have sold books to more than 100 publishers.
The agency offers its clients more than half a century of combined
writing, publishing, and agenting experience. Elizabeth handles
fiction and nonfiction for women, while Michael loves ideas and is eager to
help writers develop proposals for nonfiction books and self-published
books. Elizabeth's credo: "A novel begins when I can't put it down."
The agency does not handle articles, short stories, poetry, scripts,
children's books or textbooks.
