Celeste is regularly ranked as one of the top literary agents in the business and advises dozens of New York Times bestselling authors who sell millions of copies of their books in every language around the world, such as Jennifer Weiner, Janet Evanovich, Rachael Ray, William Li, David Sinclair, Hal Elrod and JoJo Siwa. Celeste has a special interest in authors who are both talented and ambitious. She is currently seeking commercial women’s fiction authors, thriller writers who can crossover to television and film, contemporary young adult writers, literary children’s writers, and in nonfiction, authors who want to change the world. In addition to working closely with clients to develop their proposals and edit their manuscripts, Celeste is known for negotiating 7- and 8-figure deals. Her favorite part of the job is helping new authors launch life-long careers and helping established authors plan their legacies. She thoughtfully counsels on marketing and publicity campaigns, television and film deals, and professional opportunities—such as podcasts, speaking, social media, events, and book clubs. Her goal is to keep people paying attention to her authors and their books, year after year after year. Originally from California, Celeste graduated magna cum laude in Government from Harvard University, received certifications in international conflict resolution and mediation in The Hague, and takes seriously her role as a member of her clients’ trusted inner circle.
