Michelle Witte is a literary agent with Mansion Street Literary Management representing children’s fiction and nonfiction, from babies on up through teens, and all ages in between.

Mansion Street is a boutique literary agency based in New York that seeks exciting new authors and properties to represent, founded by Jean Sagendorph, a twenty-year veteran of the entertainment industry, whose award-winning work includes many New York Times bestsellers for prominent clients like Peanuts, Food Network, and Fancy Nancy, to name a few.

Michelle’s taste in books could be described as eclectic. Or eccentric. Pretty much anything that strikes her fancy, really. From fun and silly to dark and terrifying to emotional and sublime, it’s anyone’s guess what will next win her over, but there is a constant undercurrent of quality writing and captive storytelling that runs through all of her authors’ works.
