Award-winning author and filmmaker Allen Wolf has signed for representation with Karen Grancik of Red Fox Literary, a boutique agency specializing in picture books, middle-grade, and young-adult titles. Grencik is the co-founder of the agency and is ranked by Publishers Marketplace as the #2 literary agent for children’s books in the U.S.
“I’m thrilled to begin this collaboration and I’m excited to see what we can do together as a team,” Wolf said. He first met Grencik at the Pacific Northwest Writer’s Conference where they discussed why they’re each passionate about telling good stories. Wolf later sent Grencik a sample of his work, she responded immediately, and they formed a partnership soon after. “I appreciated Karen’s passion for her work and how much she prioritizes her clients,” Wolf said.
Allen Wolf is currently developing several picture books as well as The Quest for Oz, a modern-day sequel to The Wizard of Oz. Wolf’s adult novel, Hooked, received a starred review from Kirkus Reviews and has won six awards. The novel most recently won the Gold Medal from the Literary Classic Awards.
Karen Grencik and Red Fox Literary represent authors and illustrators. They are located in Shell Beach, CA, and are currently closed to unsolicited submissions.
