About the Agency

Founded in 1976 by Barbara Lowenstein, Lowenstein Associates is a full-service agency that represents a diverse group of writers, including authors of acclaimed commercial fiction and cozy mysteries, thriller and crime fiction, young adult fiction, narrative nonfiction, and exceptional literary fiction; prominent cultural icons; and leading experts in medicine, psychology, and contemporary issues.

We have a unique approach to selling books and handling our authors’ careers, combining the kind of personal, hands-on attention of a boutique firm with the strong negotiating power of a corporate agency.

Our notable authors include Ishmael Reed, Carla A. Harris, Gordon Thomas, and M.C. Beaton, whose bestselling AGATHA RAISIN mystery series has been adapted as a hit series on Acorn TV, starring award-winning actress Ashley Jensen. The series airs on Sky in the UK and select PBS stations in the US. Season 3 premiered on October 28th, 2019, and a fourth season is currently in the works. M.C. Beaton’s bestselling HAMISH MACBETH series is also now in pre-production as a TV series.
