Selective in choosing projects to represent. Founded on the basis of her hands-on experience in the book business (as a bookseller for many years,) Charlotte Gusay represents both fiction and nonfiction books, selected young adult books with movie potential, entertainment rights, books to film, selected screenplays and screenwriters, and she often partners with WGA film agents. Looking for those books – both fiction and nonfiction that are quality and commercial. The Agency is particularly interested in innovative, unusual, eclectic, literary, historical, humor books, and those on any issues or topics, especially timely or socially important. Selection always comes down to the seduction, voice, and superb writing. Charlotte is a member of PEN America, The Authors Guild.
