Hello! My name is Lee Sobel and I am a literary agent. I am the son of a literary agent and grew up in the New York publishing world. I have books in my blood! I launched the Lee Sobel Literary Agency in 2016. It's been my joy to bring a number of great books into the world - I love what I do!
I have had a rich and varied career -- including working in the movie and television business for producers, developing scripts; I've written and directed a number of my own movies; I've produced thousands of live music events, and published and edited a number of magazines. I believe that my respect for the written word and my skills at guiding writers in their career path has enabled me to proudly call myself a literary agent. I don't have any special requirements if you would like to contact me. You can email me at and please visit my agency page on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/leesobelliteraryagency/
