Our Company

The Nancy Yost Literary Agency is based in New York City. We represent a diverse list of talented, dedicated authors. Including New York Times and USA Today Best Sellers. Each of the agents brings a varied set of skills, tastes, and backgrounds with them, but all share a passion for good books, hard work, and finding creative ways to help their authors advance.

Nancy Yost, a Las Vegas export, started her literary career in the contracts department at Random House; joined Avon Books as an editor, and worked 15+ years as an agent/v.p. before starting NYLA in 2009, but her passion for books has been lifelong. In addition to being a world class bookworm, she’s an avid scuba diver, recovering opera singer, unrepentant animal lover and caffeine addict.
