The Choate Agency had the honor of launching the career of New York Times Bestselling novelist John Hart. We’ve also worked with journalist J. Peder Zane, Shakespeare scholar Marvin Hunt, and David J. Eicher, Editor-in-Chief of Astronomy Magazine and noted Civil War historian. Mickey has also been known to work with his mother, Judith Choate, a well-known cookbook author and chef collaborator.
Born and raised in New York City, Mickey attended Trinity High School and Vassar College where he received his BA in history in 1984. In 1990, he joined Lescher & Lescher, Ltd., a renowned literary agency founded by the late Robert Lescher in 1964. While serving as the foreign rights/contracts manager, he began to represent his own clients.
His passions other than books and his family are cooking, wine and music. Most weekends he can be found in his kitchen whipping up three star meals for his family.
