Faith Hamlin

Faith Hamlin, who became an agent after a stint inside publishing, has built an impressive, eclectic list of talented authors and illustrators over her almost twenty-five-year career. Her love of children’s books has brought her some major talents, whom she has happily nurtured. In the adult area, Faith also represents non-fiction authors of psychology, psychiatry, the arts, biography, science, sports, self-help, women’s issues as well as mystery writers and whatever else interests her. Her authors have the benefit of knowing they have a loyal partner on their side who avails a sympathetic ear, provides support, encouragement, humor and occasionally tough love, as needed.

 

Faith is looking particularly for well-established authors and illustrators with substantial platforms. She prefers to receive submissions by referral, and via e-mail at fhamlin [at] sjga [dot] com. Due to the volume of submissions, she will respond only if she is considering the project.
