Lori Galvin represents both adult fiction (especially women’s fiction, book club fiction, and thrillers) and nonfiction (food, memoir and health & wellness).  Based in Boston, a few of her clients and their projects include Kwame Onwuachi for his memoir Notes from a Young Black Chef (Knopf); Hannah Kirshner for her travel memoir Foreign Woman Works in Sake Bar (Viking ’20), the Li siblings for Double Awesome Chinese Food (Roost ’19) and Cambria Brockman for the thriller Tell Me Everything (Ballantine), which has been optioned by Netflix.

What I'm Looking For

Thrillers and literary crossover fiction including book club that you can't wait to share with your friends.

Am also on the lookout for grounded speculative fiction.

For nonfiction, memoirs that explore big ideas, culture, or societal issues.
