Reminder: New literary agents (with this spotlight featuring Chris Kepner at Victoria Sanders & Associates) are golden opportunities for new writers because each one is a literary agent who is likely building his or her client list.

About Chris:He is a native of Buffalo, New York and a graduate of the University of Notre Dame. Starting as an intern for Zachary Shuster Harmsworth, Kepner joined Victoria Sanders & Associates thereafter. According to his mother, Chris has had a book with him ever since he could hold one. From the Hardy Boys Mysteries and Goosebumps, to Kurt Vonnegut and Ernest Hemingway, Chris’s passion for literature has always been strong. Chris maintains a blog and welcomes your questions and comments.

How to contact: "If you’d like to send me a query letter, e-mail it to thewritersadvocate(at)gmail(dot)com. I prefer writers include the first three chapters pasted into the body of the e-mail. Please don’t send your query to more than one agent within our agency." No snail mail queries.
