Regina Ryan is a literary agent with Regina Ryan Publishing Enterprises. Regina says: “I founded this independent literary agency company 40 years ago. Prior to that I was editor-in-chief of Macmillan Adult Books, the first woman ever to hold that position in a major hardcover publishing house. Before that I was an editor at Alfred A. Knopf.
My strong editorial background—first as an editor and later as a book producer—Is very useful in helping my authors develop their projects in the most salable way. My many years of experience in the business and my extensive contacts help me to place their books with the best houses for their projects.
I am a member of the Women’s Media Group, PEN, the Authors Guild, the Association of Authors’ Representatives (AAR), and the Agents Round Table (ART). I am a past president and former board member of the American Book Producers Association. I am also a member of the New York Audubon Society, the Linnaean Society of New York and the New York Mycological Society.
