About Us

Sarah Jane Freymann has been a literary agent since the 1970s and is the founder and president of the Sarah Jane Freymann Literary Agency, LLC.

The agency team includes associates Steven Schwartz, Katharine Sands, and Jessica Sinsheimer. The Agency has a strong commitment to serious self-help and spiritual books, with titles that have sold more than 100,000 copies in the U.S. and throughout Europe and Asia.

At least five of the agency’s cookbook authors have won the prestigious Julia Child Award.

The agency also has a strong affinity for narrative nonfiction, and represents world-renowned naturalists, award-winning journalists, and memoirists. We also represent books on lifestyle, illustration and design, many of which have become classics. In addition, we represent a growing number of literary, commercial and young adult-fiction titles.

“I see the agency as a bridge that connects the creative universe of the writer with the increasingly corporate world of publishing.

At our best, writer, agent, and publisher can find common ground in a shared vision, and produce works of value that not only succeed in the business world – but also enlighten … entertain … educate … elevate … and excite us all.

My strong belief has always been that story (fiction and non-fiction … in words or images … contemporary or historical … for entertainment or insight) is our most powerful magic.”
