Profile Summary

Having only begun her agenting career in 2015, Niki Chang is a relatively new agent. Her client list is currently very small and she is actively looking to build it, making her a great agent to approach. Given how few authors she has at the moment, it is difficult to know exactly what Niki is looking for, however, the fiction authors on her list tend to be of the literary fiction persuasion and have multiple literary awards and nominations between them. On the non-fiction side, she loves interesting, quirky stories and the people who tell them, as well as being obsessed with food.
