    Google is your friend.

    Publisher's Marketplace listing is here.

    Looks like they mainly rep non-fic, although they do list general fiction, mystery, and romance for fiction they handle.

    Looks like they've been quite busy - plenty of sales shown.

    From Preditors & Editors:

    Allen O’Shea Literary Agency: $ A literary agency.

    That dollar sign is another good sign.

    No website for the agency, but they do list email addresses on the Publisher's Marketplace listing.

    I don't have any personal experience with the agent in question or the agency, but this looks as legit as they come.

    I was thinking about sending them a query. Does anyone out there have any personal experience to share?
