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.
