A red-headed, smiling, white woman in her early 30s with medium length hair, wearing a herringbone blazer with a white top underneath.

Alex Rice is an Agent in the Books department at the leading entertainment and sports agency Creative Artists Agency (CAA). She is based in the New York office, and works across all departments to create publishing opportunities for the agency’s clients, with a focus on women’s and commercial fiction, pop culture and criticism, and young adult and middle grade across all genres. Alex graduated from Miami University Ohio with a degree in English Literature. She began her publishing career at Foundry Literary + Media before joining CAA in April 2018.



With an eye towards a more commercial, upmarket audience, Alex is especially drawn to stories in adult fiction that explore one’s identity and sense of self, family sagas, female friendship, and a fresh start on life. Alex is fond of storylines that fundamentally challenge the protagonist in some facet of life, pushing them to question their views on morality and purpose. She’ll also consider select genre books in romance, mysteries, and some thrillers when looking for a more escapist read.
