Mandy Hubbard, Founder and Agent


Pronouns: she/her

Emerald City Literary Agency launched in 2015, by agency founder Mandy  Hubbard.

Mandy began her publishing career on the other side of the desk–as an author. Her debut novel, Prada and Prejudice, was published by Penguin’s Razorbill books imprint in 2009, and went on to appear in TIME magazine and Entertainment Weekly. She has since written 10 other novels, published by Penguin, Harlequin, and Bloomsbury. Her work has been translated into a half dozen languages and optioned for film.

Prior to founding ECLA, Mandy joined D4EO Literary Agency in February of 2010, where she began building her list. A few months later she sold her first book in a 4-way auction. The following year, she brokered her first six figure deal. Mandy has now sold over 100 books. They have been optioned for film, hit the New York Times Bestseller list, and been translated into dozens of languages. She maintains a Goodreads list for all of the titles she’s sold. You can view her bookshelf here.
