Rebecca S. Pratt is a literary agent with and the founder of The Rebecca Pratt Literary Group. She says: “In the late 80’s I took my successful free-lance writer/editor career and focused on developing books, helping non-writers turn their ideas into marketable projects. When I sold the first in 1990, an agency was born.
I continued, specializing in non-fiction. Then from 1995 until 1998 I took a leave of absence. When I returned, the business had changed and so had I.
By 2001, I was ready to take the next step and assembled a team that helped the agency to thrive. Now we are at another crossroads. While I will continue as the agent or record and owner, I am now stepping back and giving the reins to a new, dedicated and capable team.
