Danielle Burby, previously with Hannigan Salky Getzler in New York, has joined the company as literary agent based in New York. She will be acquiring middle grade and young adult literature (all genres) and pursuing select passion projects in adult mysteries and thrillers and upmarket women’s fiction.
