Brenda Bowen represents books for young readers and for adults. Her clients include debut authors and artists; #1 New York Times and international bestsellers; Oscar- and Tony-award winners; Caldecott- and Newbery-Award winners. She is lucky enough to work with some of the most respected writers and illustrators in the business. Brenda happily sells literary fiction, humor, mass market series, and YA, middle-grade, and picture books. She has eclectic taste.
Before becoming a literary agent in the summer of 2009, Brenda held a variety of positions during her 25-plus years in children’s publishing. She has been editorial director of Henry Holt & Books for Young Readers, Scholastic Press, Disney/Hyperion, and Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing. She also has the unique advantage of having seen publishing from all sides: she is an award-winning author of books for children and novels for adults, and is herself represented by Greenburger Associates.
A past member of the board of directors of the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art and of the Children’s Book Council, Brenda is now an active member of the Association of Authors’ Representatives, SCBWI and the Authors Guild. She lives with her family in New York City, and spends as much of the summer as she can in Maine
