 Good luck querying!

1. Leigh Eisenman of Hannigan Salky Geltzer (HSG) Agency

She is seeking: Leigh seeks submissions in the areas of literary and commercial fiction for adults, and
is particularly drawn to: flawed protagonists she can't help but fall in love with (Holden Caulfield was her
 first crush); stories that take place in contemporary New York, but also any well-defined, vivid setting;
 and given her background, novels set in law firms or involving lawyers (but not legal thrillers). On the
 nonfiction side, Leigh is interested in foodie/cookbooks (especially baking and - maybe conversely -
healthy cooking), health and fitness, lifestyle, and select narrative nonfiction.

2. Mitch Hoffman of Aaron Priest Literary Agency

He is seeking: Mitch is actively building a client list of authors writing across the spectrum of fiction
and nonfiction, including thrillers, suspense, crime fiction, and literary fiction, as well as narrative
 nonfiction, politics, popular science, history, memoir, current events, and pop culture.

3. Alexa Stark of Trident Media Group

She is seeking: Alexa's interests are wide-ranging, but she is particularly drawn to literary
 fiction, upmarket commercial fiction, young adult, memoir, narrative nonfiction, popular
science, cultural criticism and women's issues.
