PARK LITERARY GROUP LLC
The Park Literary Group was founded in January 2005, when Theresa Park and several colleagues left the venerable literary agency, Sanford J. Greenburger Associates. Theresa had been an agent at Greenburger for more than 10 years, but at the age of 37 was eager to try building a new venture. A full-service literary agency, The Park Literary Group represents fiction and nonfiction with a boutique approach: an emphasis on servicing a relatively small number of clients, with the highest professional standards and focused personal attention. With a full-time foreign rights director, a director of business and client affairs, and excellent relationships with film and television co-agents in Los Angeles, the agency brings to bear excellent resources and a wealth of experience in exploiting all rights associated with an author's work. THERESA PARK Founder Theresa began her career as a literary agent at Sanford J. Greenburger Associates in 1994. (Prior to that, she was an attorney at Cooley Godward, a Silicon Valley law firm.) She represents a mixture of plot-driven fiction and serious nonfiction. Some of her clients include Nicholas Sparks, Debbie Macomber, Emily Giffin, Laura Zigman, Linda Nichols, Robert Whitaker, Lee Silver, B.R. Myers, and Thomas Levenson. A graduate of U.C. Santa Cruz and Harvard Law School, she is married and has two children. ABIGAIL KOONS Agent and Executive Director of Foreign Rights Abigail works with both emerging and established talent, representing projects about popular science, history, politics, current affairs and art. She also has a passion for character-driven commercial women's fiction. She began her career at the Nicholas Ellison Agency. Prior to that, she worked for EF Education, a multinational corporation based in Sweden. Abigail is a graduate of Boston University. Emily Sweet PETER KNAPP Peter joined the Park Literary Group in July 2011.
