Heather Flaherty represents Adult, YA, and Middle-Grade Fiction and Nonfiction. 


I grew up in Massachusetts, and worked in New York City as a playwright during college. After a lot of country-hopping in my early twenties, I began my publishing career in the editorial department at Random House UK. I then became a Literary Scout, advising foreign publishers and Hollywood on the next big books. Now, as an agent, I'm thrilled to focus on helping authors find that same success

Writer Focused. Clients and their work always come first, whether I'm championing their projects or aiding editorially, we work together for successful, stable, and long-lasting careers.

Select List. It's about quality not quantity. I take on only so many clients that my attention for each will not be pulled thin. Each client should feel they have me in their corner.

Subrights. I focus, alongside TBA's in-house foreign rights team, to sell subsidiary rights for all client projects,

as there are many different avenues of income for my authors to gain from subrights, from Foreign sales to Film & TV. 

Reputation. The Bent Agency has a stellar reputation that, as an agent, I take great pride in upholding.

Collaborative Agency. The Bent Agency not only has an impeccable reputation with decades of

experience behind it, but is also incredibly collaborative. When you have one of us, you have all of TBA behind you!
