Anna Ghosh

Russell Galen

Founded (under the name Scovil Chichak Galen Literary Agency) in 1992 by three of the industry’s most successful and experienced agents, the firm was renamed when our senior colleague Anna Ghosh became a partner. Works represented by the agency have appeared scores of times on national bestseller lists and been made into dozens of Hollywood movies and translated into more than 40 languages.

Our list is eclectic and chaotic, rich and diverse, and there is no type of book that doesn’t interest us if it is first-rate. We take on clients who interest us deeply as people and as writers, whatever their background and prior accomplishments. At any given moment we might be working on a first sale for an exciting new author or an eight-figure deal for a veteran of the New York Times bestseller list, or anything in between.
