Since 1988, the Helen Heller Agency has been recognized as an internationally successful literary agency, with a list that reflects our ability to recognize critically and commercially acclaimed writers.


The Agency

Our titles include multiple New York Times, UK Sunday Times, and Globe and Mail #1 bestsellers; 5 Richard & Judy Picks; and twice we have represented the top selling novel of the year in the UK. Internationally, we represent major best sellers in numerous languages, and many of our titles are or have been optioned for film and TV.

While we are known as a key agency on both sides of the Atlantic, we remain a boutique Agency, and as such we pride ourselves on our continued ability to maintain accessible and direct relationships with our authors.

Translation rights are co-handled with The Marsh Agency.

Film and tv rights are co handled by various entertainment agencies on a case by case basis.
