Former publishing executive Rubin Pfeffer, who was most recently senior v-p and publisher of Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing, has gone to the agenting side and is opening an East Coast office for the Los Angeles-based outfit, East/West Literary. Pfeffer has been brought on as an agent and partner, and will be based in Boston, handling digital initiatives, among other things, for the agency, which specializes in representing children's authors and illustrators. According to an announcement from EWA, Pfeffer will be "developing and creating content for the 21st-century incarnations of publishing, both electronic and traditional print."
And on his client list already? Richard Jesse Watson (as well as Faith Pray, Richard and Susi Watson's daughter). Huzzah!
