Stephanie Delman

Stephanie Delman has been with Sanford J. Greenburger Associates since early 2012. After working closely with agency president Heide Lange for several years, handling foreign rights for Dan Brown, Brad Thor, and other bestselling authors while simultaneously building her own list, Stephanie transitioned to full-time agenting in January 2018.

Stephanie represents a spectrum of authors who write for the adult market, with a focus on fiction: literary/upmarket, psychologically propulsive suspense, near-historical fiction, and genre-bending, literary narratives that contain elements of surrealism, magic, or sci-fi (her favorite non-client books in this space include STATION ELEVEN by Emily St. John Mandel and HER BODY AND OTHER PARTIES by Carmen Maria Machado). Stephanie also represents a limited selection of narrative non-fiction projects by authors with established platforms and unique perspectives. In non-fiction, she is looking for longform reportage that reads like fiction, true crime, and expert accounts of dark and far-flung corners of the world. In both fiction and non-fiction, Stephanie favors #ownvoices, diverse perspectives, and feminist narratives. A graduate of Johns Hopkins’ Writing Seminars program, Stephanie considers herself a “hands-on” agent and is eager to work with debut authors who are serious about their craft.
