About the Agents

WS.HEADSHOT

Wendy Sherman has been in publishing more years than she cares to admit.  She has held senior, executive positions at Simon & Schuster, Macmillan, and Henry Holt. During her time at these major publishing houses, she worked in the areas of subsidiary rights, marketing, sales, and editorial. With a desire to work more closely with writers and help develop their careers, she founded Wendy Sherman Associates Literary Management in 1999.

Wendy loves voice and story-driven fiction. She is interested in women’s fiction that hits that sweet spot between literary and mainstream and has a passion for Southern voices, historical dramas, suspense with a well-developed protagonist, and has a weakness for family secrets, mother-daughter relationships, and realistic love stories.

She is also interested in non-fiction with a unique twist by authors with a strong, well-developed media platform. Memoir, narrative non-fiction, practical and prescriptive, self-help and mainstream psychology are also general areas of interest.  Strong categories for her include parenting, relationships, lifestyle, pop-culture, and just about anything to do with food or dogs.

Wendy is on the Board of Directors of the Association of Authors Representatives (AAR) and a member of The Women’s Media Group.
