Nick Mullendore

Nick Mullendore joined Loretta Barrett Books, Inc. in April 1998 and has been its President since the agency's founder, Loretta A. Barrett, passed away in October 2014.  He also founded the Vertical Ink Agency in 2016 for new projects by existing and new clients.

Nick began his publishing career in publicity at HarperBusiness, the trade business books imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, after graduating from the University of Missouri—Columbia with a B.A. in Creative Writing in 1996. At Missouri, Nick was an intern and, after graduation, an employee of one of the nation’s premier literary magazines, The Missouri Review. He is also an alumnus of New York University’s Summer Publishing Institute.

Nick’s tastes tend to run just outside the mainstream. Counter-cultural, counter-intuitive, thought provoking, dark, relevant—if any of these describe a project, then it will probably hold some appeal for him. Politics, current affairs, science (particularly physics and space), pop culture criticism, sports, scientific thrillers, noir, literary fiction—apply a unique perspective and Nick’s curiosity will be piqued. And funny is good, too. Everybody likes the funny.
