BACKGROUND: In 2001, Paul Rodeen went to work for Sterling Lord Literistic, Inc. in NYC. In 2004, Paul moved back to his home state of Illinois where he opened up a small satellite office in Chicago for Sterling Lord Literistic, Incorporated. Between 2004 and 2008, Paul expanded his list of clients to include over a dozen talented writers and illustrators of picture books, middle grade novels and young adult fiction. Author/illustrator Peter Brown, was Paul’s first client at Sterling Lord and Peter is still with him today. This group of talented artists became the backbone of what would become Rodeen Literary Management.
In late 2008, with much encouragement from his clients, editors, publishers and other agents, Paul Rodeen established Rodeen Literary Agency an agency devoted to supporting the careers of children’s book writers and illustrators.
SEEKING: Rodeen Literary Management is actively seeking talented writers and illustrators of all genres of children’s literature including picture books, early readers, middle-grade fiction and nonfiction, graphic novels and comic books as well as young adult fiction and nonfiction.
