Chris Tomasino is a literary agent with the Tomasino Agency. Chris has been agenting since 1975, when she joined RLR Associates, Ltd and developed their literary division. Her clients have ranged from Civil War historian and novelist Shelby Foote to Yankee baseball manager Joe Torre, from talented international book packagers Labyrinth Publishing and Carroll & Brown to diverse corporate clients Angel Records and The PGA. She is as comfortable with commercial fiction as she is with highly produced full color books; with the unconventional and best-selling Anti-Coloring Books as she is with translating the online wedding resource, The Knot, into a book franchise. Ever ahead of the trends, she was in on the boon in young adult fiction series in the 1970′s and 1980′s, the cookbook and lifestyle rage in the 1980′s, and the blossoming of spirituality and esoterica in the 1980′s and 1990′s. Having started her own, boutique-sized agency in 2000, she is best known for representing popular non-fiction books tapping into the newest theories in health, science and spirituality, but only those backed up by impeccable research and scholarship. She is on the faculty of the M.A./M.F.A. in Creative Writing program at Wilkes University.
