Paule S Levine headshot Paul S. Levine

Literary Agent

The two main keys to success as a literary agent are: knowing many different editors and knowing what they are “buying” for their publishing houses. When he opened The Paul S. Levine Literary Agency in 1996, Levine had less than 200 editors in his private database; in his database he now has over 2,200 editors, to whom he has sold over 250 fiction and nonfiction books.

As an entertainment lawyer, Levine has written the legal contracts for several books adapted as movies-for-television. With 38 years of experience in the entertainment and book industries, Levine is one of the few lawyers on the west coast who also understands the world of book publishing; as such, he is able to act as both literary agent and publishing attorney for his clients.
