K2 Literary is a literary agency based in Toronto, Canada. I started this agency in 2018, after over ten years of working in Canadian publishing. My first job involved handling print production for co-edition books at Madison Press, a book packager. There, I worked with a number of international publishers and co-agents, and the relationships I formed still stand me in good stead, to this day. I’ve also had short editorial stints at a major Canadian publisher and a communications company. More recently, I worked in rights at Kids Can Press and was agent/rights manager at The Rights Factory. These various roles have helped me develop a fantastic network in Canada, and internationally.

As the primary agent at K2 Literary, I represent fiction, nonfiction, and children’s books. Well, whatever interests me that would also interest the reading market. Additionally, I represent the rights for several Canadian publishers, in overseas markets.

K2 Literary works with many co-agents for translation rights, and you can find a list of those co-agents on the Co-Agents page (more to come soon).

I look forward to working with you.
