Publish date:

We just reported a few months ago that literary agent Mollie Glick left the Jean V. Naggar Lit Agency and headed to Foundry Literary + Media. Now, the word from Galleycat is that agent Stephen Barbara of the Donald Maass Agency is headed to Foundry, as well. Naturally, he's taking his list of authors with him.

That makes eight agents at Foundry now. It's turning into quite the little powerhouse.

Some info about Stephen:

"He represents all categories of books for young readers (from YA to middle-grade to chapter and picture books) in addition to servicing writers for the adult market. His clients include Texas Blue Bonnet finalist Lisa Graff, acclaimed middle-grade novelist Lynne Jonell (Emmy and the Incredible Shrinking Rat), Newbery Medal winner Laura Amy Schlitz, popular YA author Todd Strasser, and on the adult side Bram Stoker Award finalist Paul Tremblay (The Little Sleep) and leading fat loss expert Tom Venuto (The Body Fat Solution)."
