Kirsten Neuhaus is a literary agent with Ultra Literary. Kirsten believes that books provide an incredibly powerful method to deliver important messages to readers around the world. Those messages can and do change not just the conversations we have with each other, but also with ourselves. Her list of clients includes entrepreneurs, personalities, influencers and thought leaders across a wide range of industries. Her hands on, thoughtful approach to representation begins with helping her authors develop the right book concept to best highlight their stories and goals, in addition to connecting with and enhancing their existing platforms. Once she’s procured the best possible deal and publisher for her clients, she remains a steady presence by their side, ensuring each step of the process is handled as seamlessly and carefully as possible. This approach helps her clients have successful books the first time around, and on subsequent books as well.
She represents bestselling authors such as Shark Tank star and founder of FUBU Daymond John, venture capitalist and author of the cult classic Pitch Anything, Oren Klaff, host of American Ninja Warrior Akbar Gbajabiamila, celebrity chef and frequent guest on GMA and The Today Show, Ryan Scott, as well as internet phenom and picture book author Parker Curry amongst many others. Upcoming projects include memoirs by founder and original CEO of Bonobos, Andy Dunn, designer of the iconic Boy Meets Girl fashion brand, Stacy Igel, star of Southern Charm and founder and CMO of Sewing Down South Craig Conover, as well as a revolutionary new guide for parents, by Meenal Lele, founder & CEO of Lil Mixins, a food allergy prevention solution that is the #1 pediatrician recommended. She’s always looking for books that accomplish three important things, the right concept/story, the right author, and the right time.
