About Us

We are a literary agency specializing in serious nonfiction on a variety of topics: everything from memoir and history and biography to popular science, business, and psychology. Our clients include CEOs, top doctors, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists, academics, politicos, and radio and television personalities.

Here’s what one client, a National Book Award and Pulitzer Prize winner, wrote about us in the acknowledgements of her most recent book: “I owe special thanks to my agent, Gail Ross, and her colleague Howard Yoon. They journeyed outside the mapped terrain of agentry into inspiration, editing, guidance, nudging and hand-holding. There is no one in my professional life to whom I have been attached for so many years as Gail, and this has been my good fortune.”

We are based in Washington, D.C. You can follow us on Twitter @RossYoon. Here’s a video of Gail and Howard talking more about the agency.
