From the Wales Literary Agency, Inc. guidelines:

Although our authors live all across the country and overseas, we are especially interested in writers from the Pacific Northwest, the West, Alaska, and the Pacific Rim. We “minor” in quirky and challenging projects. We take on very few genre projects but represent the occasional psychological thriller, mystery, or dystopian SF. We do not represent self-help, children’s or YA fiction, or specifically religious books.
