Christie Megill is a literary agent with The CAT Agency, Inc. She joined The CAT Agency in 2022 after interning with Writers House, Triada US, and Cardinal Rule Press. She’s overjoyed to be working with talented creators to support their remarkable, distinctive art.
Christie comes to the agency with a background in elementary education. After several years of reading picture books to her young students, she shifted to children’s publishing in order to help make these books instead. She previously worked as an editorial assistant at an academic press in New York City, as a volunteer at the Housing Works Bookstore in SoHo, and as a bookseller at the bygone Borders Books and Music in Columbus Circle.
She holds a BA in English Literature from Fordham University and is a certificated elementary school teacher. Born and raised in Connecticut, she now considers New York City her forever home.
When she’s not losing herself in a good book, she can be found making butter-laden desserts, exploring new museums, and hiking in the woods with her three children.
