Cherry Weiner, Agent
CW Literary Agency
Cherry Weiner grew up in Australia, lived in Europe for three and a half years and moved to America when she married her husband Jack. She has been agenting since 1977, when she left the Robert P. Mills Agency
Mills’ famous clients (she will not drop names, but might tell you about it, if you ask her), took two years to convince her to open her own agency. They did this by inundating her with new authors and their manuscripts.
She started out by handling science fiction, fantasy, and horror. She now handles all genres of fiction and a good number of fairly well-known authors in the field of Horror, Science Fiction / Fantasy, Romance, Mystery, Westerns, Native American novels and Historical novels covering all the various genres each category can break out into. Only once in a very special situation has non-fiction crept into the mix but no poetry, no children’s fiction and almost no Young Adult works. If there is Y.A., then it is science fiction, fantasy or horror, and only by the authors she already handles in adult fiction.
