Agent | Sanford J. Greenburger Associates

Stephanie Delman began her career at Sanford J. Greenburger Associates in early 2012, after a stint in digital media. Stephanie worked closely with agency president Heide Lange for nearly six years, handling foreign rights for Dan Brown, Brad Thor, and other bestselling authors while also building her own list. She is now a full-time senior agent, representing a spectrum of authors who write for the adult market. In fiction, Stephanie is particularly enthusiastic about literary/upmarket contemporary fiction, genre-bending suspense, near-historical fiction, and literary narratives that contain elements of surrealism, magic, or sci-fi. Stephanie also represents a selection of nonfiction by authors with established, engaging, and unique perspectives, as well as a few comic illustrators. A graduate of Johns Hopkins’ Writing Seminars program, Stephanie considers herself a “hands-on” agent and is eager to work with debut authors who are serious about their craft.
