We have some changes at our Agency: First, we would like to express our warmest thanks to Literary Agent Julia Kellums for her excellent work at our Agency, as she has decided to pursue new challenges as of May 1st, 2021.

Secondly, we’d like to introduce and welcome our new colleague, Literary Agent Ebba Erolin, who starting today, is handling rights in the Nordic Countries and France, and in collaboration with our co-agents in Spain, Latin America, Brazil & Portugal and Japan and Korea.

Julia and Ebba will work together over the transition period in April. Ebba has worked with marketing at our Agency since February 2021.
We wish Ebba a perfect beginning and support her on the way of becoming the best agent in the world.
