Paul Lucas

Literary Agent

Paul Lucas joined the Janklow & Nesbit Associates legal department in 2007. He first started representing authors in 2011 and is now eagerly expanding his graphic, fiction and nonfiction lists. In fiction, he admires a really well-told story featuring strong lead characters. He seeks both literary and commercial fiction, focusing on literary thrillers, science fiction and fantasy. On the nonfiction side, he loves narrative histories of ideas and objects, as well as biographies and popular science.
