"So proud that Regina is my agent. Smart as a whip, and one of the nicest people I know. I love that we're currently working on our NINTH book together! "

- Andrea Warren

"Were it not for Regina Ryan's critical insight, her challenge to create meaningful graphics, and her gentle but firm guidance, editorial suggestions, and persistence, my book never would have been published. Thanks, Regina, for everything you have done."      

- Edmund Stump, Ph.D.

"I wish that I had met Regina Ryan earlier in my career. She has a thorough knowledge of the publishing industry and recognizes proposals that are likely to sell. We spent weeks polishing mine and after it sold she helped me shepherd it through the writing, editing and production process. She participated in finding the "best" cover and title for the book. She is by my side now that the book is out, helping me to publicize it and to sell subsidiary rights. Most of all you realize that if necessary, Regina would go to bat for her authors, which is very important in these uncertain times."    

- Suzanne Loebl

"As a first-time author, I found Regina's help invaluable; she helped me negotiate the many complicated steps necessary to write a first-rate book proposal, she offered guidance for my writing style and worked tirelessly to make sure I had a contract with my publisher that was fair to me in every way. Without her inestimable help, my book would have never been published."

- Michael Petty, DVM

"We were also amazingly fortunate to work with our agent, Regina Ryan, who, in addition to doing the agent thing, turned out to be a wonderful writer and editor as well. The book benefited substantially from her editorial recommendations and her willingness to try our diet recommendations herself."            

- Judith Wurtman, Ph.D. & Nina Frusztajer, MD

"Regina Ryan is the ultimate professional as an agent.  She is smart and wise, efficient, insightful, and unfailingly gracious and supportive. She is especially good at providing advice with the kind of great specificity that makes it easy for an author to know how to improve the work.  I trust her completely.  She knows the business and understands human nature and dynamics.  In talking with other authors and editors at various houses, I have heard nothing but the most appreciative, admiring, and respectful comments."      

- Paula Caplan, Ph.D.
