Representing Fiction/Nonfiction Authors


Sandra Bishop represents notable nonfiction and award-winning fiction authors who write across a variety of categories.

Sandra is currently only interested in considering commercially viable non-fiction submissions on pop-culture, celebrity memoir, cooking, hobbies, travel, lifestyle, parenting, and relationships from authors with an established platform, online or media presence, or recognized expertise.

Sandra is not taking on new fiction authors, but she will consider representation of established romance authors seeking new representation. She will also consider complete manuscripts from fiction writers she meets at conferences, or via referral from current clients or industry associates.

No erotica, academic, or textbooks, please.

If you believe you have something I’d like to consider, please send a query to If you do not hear from me within eight weeks, please assume I am not able to consider your project.


A literary agent since 2008, Sandra Bishop represents a boutique list of notable non-fiction and award-winning fiction authors.

Sandra passionately supports her clients closely from idea through negotiation and beyond, and works alongside an author’s editor, publicist, and marketing team to help create opportunities for success.

Sandra is a former Marine, and is also a Portland, Oregon native who doesn’t like ale, drive a Subaru, wait two hours in line for brunch, or live in a treehouse with a lumberjack (much to her dismay.) She does enjoy hiking, live music, paddle-boarding, sunshine, star gazing, and working out of her home office located halfway between the scenic Columbia River Gorge and the rugged Oregon coast.
