Veritas is a full-service literary agency representing both fiction and non-fiction. Founded on the premise that literature is one of the best vehicles for truth—both artistic and literal—the agency cultivates strong, innovative books that extend the boundaries of thought and expression.
With active contacts in film and foreign markets, we actively pursue the channels that enable a title to reach its widest audience. Veritas maintains the structure and spirit of old school literary agencies, where a close relationship between author and agent continued through all stages of a writer’s career. By maintaining a selective list we can ensure that every author and title receives consistent, thoughtful attention and resources. Accessibility is always a priority.

A member of the AAR, the Authors Guild, and SSCCB, she loves books that radically shift a reader’s understanding.
