Kristin established Nelson Literary Agency, LLC in 2002. Being an avid reader practically since birth, Kristin is equally happy reading a Pulitzer prize-winning literary novel for her book club or a sexy romance novel. Clients include bestselling authors Jamie Ford, Hugh Howey, Ally Carter, Marie Lu, Gail Carriger, Simone Elkeles, Courtney Milan, and RITA-award winners Sherry Thomas and Linnea Sinclair. She is currently looking for literary commercial novels, big crossover novels with one foot squarely in genre, upmarket women's fiction, lead title or hardcover science fiction and fantasy, single-title romance (with a special passion for historicals), and young adult and upper-level middle grade novels.
When she is not busy selling books, Kristin plays tennis as well as Bridge (where she is the youngest person in her club). She can also be found hiking in the mountains with her husband and their dog Chutney.
