Veritas is a full-service literary agency specializing in select literary and contemporary fiction and nonfiction. Founded on the premise that literature is one of the best carriers of truth—both emotional and literal—in the world today, the agency cultivates strong, innovative books that extend the boundaries of thought and expression.
With active contacts in film, media and foreign markets, we actively pursue the channels that enable a title to reach its widest audience and realize its full potential. Veritas maintains the structure and spirit of old school literary agencies, where a close relationship between author and agent continued through all stages of a writer’s career. By maintaining a selective, manageable list we can ensure that every author and title receives enough energy and resources. Accessibility is always a priority.
Founder Katherine Boyle
attended Stanford and Berkeley and worked at a variety of Bay
Area independent publishers and literary agencies before
establishing Veritas in 1995. A member of the AAR and the
Authors Guild, she is an inveterate champion of the written
word and hopelessly addicted to the hundreds of books lining
Associate Michael Carr
is a literary agent with a background in editing and writing,
working from a home base in the Northeast. He works carefully
with clients to produce the cleanest, most professional
manuscripts and enjoys teaching at workshops and conferences
to help develop emerging writers. Michael speaks Spanish and
conversational French and before joining Veritas had
professions as diverse as programming simulators for nuclear
submarines and owning an inn in Vermont.
Associate Chiara Rosati attended
Middlebury College in Vermont where she cultivated her
love for literature and mastered the Italian language.
Prior to joining Veritas, she
served as legal counsel to emerging companies in Silicon
Valley. Chiara's passion for nuanced expression in
the written form, combined with her devotion to
nurturing clients and their creations, fuels her
artistic mission: that of helping noteworthy manuscripts
make the transformative journey into published
works. When not reading, writing, talking or
dreaming about books, Chiara plays with her son who is
the light of her life and enjoys correcting her
pronunciation from time to time.
