Kimberley Cameron & Associates is a West Coast agency with seven agents on its roster, three of whom are actively looking for authors, including, Kimberley Cameron, the agency’s highly experienced president:

Kimberley Cameron began her career as an agent trainee at the Marjel d Lauer Agency in association with Jay Garon in New York. She worked at MGM for several years developing books for motion pictures. She was the co-founder of Knightsbridge Publishing Company, then in 1993 she became partners with Dorris Halsey of the Reese Halsey Agency, founded in 1957. Among its clients have been Aldous Huxley, William Faulkner, and Henry Miller. She opened Reese Halsey North in 1995 and Reese Halsey Paris in 2006. Her associate Elizabeth Evans opened Reese Halsey New York in 2008, and in 2009, the the agency became Kimberlye Cameron & Associates.
Kimberley lives and works in Tiburon, California, with many visits to New York to make the rounds of the editorial offices.
“I’ve enjoyed being an agent for 26 years, and love to find new voices,” says Kimberley. “I love to lose myself in a story and to be transported to another reality, whether it be in the future, contemporary, or in the past. I am a complete Francophile and have spent lots of time living in Paris and the South of France, and yes, I have sold lots of books from abroad, as I’m always working! I love to read.”
Kimberley represents both fiction and nonfiction, in many different genres and is especially thrilled to take on new authors.

Amy Cloughley joined the agency in 2012, with a background in editing, writing and marketing. She seeks authors with unique, clear voices who put forth smart, tightly written prose. She is actively building her client list with both debut and veteran writers.
Amy enjoys literary and upmarket fiction of all types, in addition to commercial fiction, including well-researched historical fiction and well-told women’s fiction. She also loves a page-turning mystery or suspense with sharp wit and unexpected twists and turns.
She has a soft spot for distinctive, strong contemporary characters set in small towns. Amy always looks for an unexpected story arc, a suitable pace, and a compelling protagonist.
In nonfiction, Amy is interested in narrative nonfiction that immerse the reader in a culture, lifestyle, discipline, or industry. She will also consider a travel or adventure memoir.
