Rachel Vogel joined The Waxman Leavell Agency as an agent in 2013. She’s previously held positions at Mary Evans Inc., Lippincott Massie McQuilkin and at the literary scouting agency, Maria Campbell Associates, where she scouted the American book market for foreign publishers and for Warner Brothers.
She is interested in fiction that pays equal attention to both the voice and the story, and is particularly drawn to literary fiction that pops off the page, upmarket thrillers and mysteries, “book club” books, and novels with a fantastic/paranormal element that reach beyond genre.
In non-fiction, she is on the lookout for subject-driven narratives, memoirs and biography and journalism. Some of the books she’s represented include Rebecca Dana’s memoir Jujitsu Rabbi and the Godless Blond (Amy Einhorn/Putnam), the forthcoming debut novel Race Across the Sky by Derek Sherman (Plume), and a narrative nonfiction work about the Japanese tsunami and earthquake disaster Strong in the Rain by Lucy Birmingham and David O’Neill (Palgrave)
