Chris Kepner is a literary agent with and the founder of The Kepner Agency. He says: “I’ve been working in the publishing industry since 2008, both as a literary agent and more recently as a director of international rights. I have negotiated hundreds of book licenses all over the world, and I couldn’t be more excited about launching this agency. Discovering authors is my passion, and building a new list is an absolute thrill.

I live with my amazing wife, our magical baby girl, and our 16-year-old puppy in New Jersey, a half hour west of Manhattan. I’m originally from the lovely Buffalo area and still visit family and friends there at least twice a year. I studied English and business at Notre Dame, and I still watch all of their football games. It’s great when they win, but I don’t get too upset when they lose (it’s only football, people.) I’ve been in love with music and skiing for as long as I can remember, and I recently became enamored with disc golf. It has everything great about regular golf without the huge expense, heavy bags, tee times, stuffy etiquette, dress codes, or crowds.

Our lives may seem/be meaningless when you take a broad space-time perspective, but this thing we’ve got, this world we all share…it’s pretty special. Let’s cherish it, and one another, while we can.”
