The Cowles Agency is dedicated to helping authors find a clear mission, relevance, and substantial audience for their book projects.
Our interests include memoir, narrative, health, design, photography, business, and culinary.
At every step of the process, we act as both a strategic and creative resource to refine concepts and amplify key book ideas. We often bring in talented collaborators, artists, writers and photographers to support our projects when necessary. We work with authors over the course of their careers to extend their brands, often by selling ancillary rights directly including foreign, licensing, sponsorships, film and new commercial projects.
Prior to becoming an independent agent, Katherine worked for twelve years at Doubleday and Simon & Schuster, where she served as Associate Publisher and Vice President responsible for business affairs, production, and nonfiction acquisitions. She is currently a member of AAR and the Authors Guild.
