Ellen Coughtrey is a literary agent with The Gernery Company. A graduate of Davidson College, Ellen landed in New York without a plan and serendipitously found her way into publishing—and the Gernert Company—in 2013. Her reading taste is broad: women’s upmarket and commercial fiction, smart original thrillers and mysteries, historical fiction that sweeps the reader off her feet or turns history on its head, and clever, witty Young Adult fiction that trusts the reader with big topics. She’s also looking for narrative nonfiction and books on parenting and relationships. Ellen lives with her husband and son in Harlem.
This literary agent represents:
FICTION: Commercial * Historical * Literary * Mystery * Thriller * Upmarket Fiction * Women’s Fiction * Young Adult Fiction *
NONFICTION: Dating/Relationship/Sex * General Nonfiction * Narrative * Parenting/Child Guidance *
