Madeleine Morel knows publishing, knows writers and authors, and knows how to do the “matching magic” to produce great books. She is also honest, smart, candid, dedicated, loyal, discrete, and a lot of fun. It has been my great pleasure to work with her on multiple projects.
• Robert B. Barnett, Partner, Williams & Connolly, LLP
When it comes to matching an ‘author’ with a ghostwriter, no-one has more talented collaborators than Madeleine Morel. She knows her writers intimately, is great fun to work with and takes the headaches out of literary matchmaking. I couldn’t recommend her more highly.
• Jen Bergstrom, SVP & Publisher, Gallery Books, a division of Simon & Schuster
I have been doing business with Madeleine Morel for 15 years. She is one of the fastest, most reliable, gifted and talented agents in the book business. Her specialization in pairing collaborators with authors is unmatched. She is always available to brainstorm ideas for pairings and she represents exceptionally talented writers. Her suggestions are always thoughtful and her candidates are always strong. She is trustworthy with confidential projects and fast with her suggestions and negotiations. On top of it all, she’s a wonderful person too.
• Cait Hoyt, Creative Artists Agency
One of the great things about working in book publishing is the people, the high-level professionals who do the job with that perfect combination of sophistication, professionalism, and a real sense of happiness and positivity. And to me no one embodies that more than Madeleine Morel. We have a constant need for the best writers in the business and it is because of this that she is always the first call we make. She is, unquestionably, the best at what she does.
• Byrd Leavell, Head of Publishing United Talent Agency
Madeleine is a true gem! She’s nearly as involved as the editor in staying on top of the talent and collaborator to ensure that every book she is involved with is outstanding and has the best possible opportunity to become successful. Every time I have worked with Madeleine and one of her writers I have learned something invaluable that made me elevate my expectations and carry it forward to the next celebrity project.
• Tracy Sherrod, VP Executive Editor, Little, Brown & Company
Madeleine Morel is a veritable powerhouse. She is trusted by major celebrities, public intellectuals, and business and governmental leaders to navigate the writing and editorial development of their books at the highest level. She is one of the most beloved and successful agents in the industry.
