Susan Ramer is a literary agent with Don Congdon Associates. Susan started at Don Congdon Associates in 1986. She represents writers of literary fiction, upmarket commercial fiction (contemporary and historical), and narrative non-fiction. She is drawn to an authentic voice, unforgettable characters and a well-crafted story that is emotional in unpredictable ways. For non-fiction, her interests include social history, cultural history, smart pop culture (music, film, food, and art), women’s and family issues, psychology and mental health, and memoir with a distinctive theme; she particularly likes a narrative that combines a personal thread with reporting and analysis of a broader social or cultural issue. In everything, Susan appreciates a sense of humor, especially when it’s on the dark side.
