Christy Ewers is a literary agent with The CAT Agency, Inc. Owner and agent, Christy Ewers, has been rooted in the children’s literature industry since her mother, Chris, started the agency in 1994, and joined as an agent in 2013. Although Christy is not an artist herself, art has been an integral part of her life and career, even before joining the agency. With a degree in English/Journalism and decades of experience in various creative fields, Christy brings a unique perspective to the agency, while maintaining the enthusiasm and love of art that is her mother’s legacy in the industry. She works closely with the entire “family” of artists, spearheading the promotion and deals for CAT Agency illustrators, as well as working alongside the authors in the group to help craft their stories and hone their writing for young readers.
Aside from writing, her interests include running long distances, seaside escapes, very hot coffee and pitbulls. Christy is – hilariously enough – a dog person. Her family welcomed their pitbull puppy, Leia (as in Princess), into the family in 2020.
Her husband, Chris Ewers, is an artist, too, as a talented cinematographer and film-maker (www.christopherewers.com). They have 2 little ones, Billie & Finnegan, who are The CAT Agency’s resident experts and critics. Billie has over 8 years of experience in the world, and is a fan of everything and anything “unicorn”. At age 5, Finn boasts incredible knowledge of THE GIVING TREE, which he can now practically recite. Billie currently enjoys using every marker in the box, while Finn uses the color red. And only the color red.
