Literary Agent

Alex Shelton

I’m Alex Shelton, a passionate literary agent with a lifelong love for words and narratives. Born and raised in the vibrant city of San Diego, California, I embarked on a journey that led me through the halls of the University of California, San Diego, where I earned my degree in English Literature.

My literary odyssey officially began at Verve Talent and Literary Agency in Los Angeles, California, where I honed my skills and nurtured my love for the written word. In 1996, I spread my wings and soared to the literary hub of New York to join the esteemed Stuart Krichevsky Literary Agency as a junior literary agent. Over the years, my dedication and commitment to fostering literary talent allowed me to ascend to the esteemed position of a literary agent in 2003.

The dynamic landscape of the literary world has been my playground, and I’ve had the privilege of working with various renowned literary agencies. In 2014, I embarked on a new chapter with The Literary Firm, bringing my wealth of experience and passion for storytelling to this esteemed establishment.

What sets me apart is not just my extensive experience but also my unwavering dedication to authors and their stories. I believe in the power of every narrative to captivate, inspire, and transform. Whether you’re a debut author with a manuscript bursting with potential or an established writer seeking new horizons, I am here to champion your literary journey.

Let’s embark on this adventure together, turning your words into a timeless legacy. Your story matters, and I am here to help it find its place in the world. Reach out, and let’s weave the next chapter of literary greatness together.
