VeroK.Agency is a dream come true - as much as it was one, when I arrived in London in 2001,
to get my first job in publishing. I've been very lucky to work in the Foreign Rights Departments
of two top UK publishing houses (Kingfisher Publications and Walker Books Ltd) for six years
and have decided to use this experience to launch my own Literary Agency in August 2008.
French native, I have lived in the US, Germany and the UK before moving to Barcelona in June
2012.The thought of working in children's books struck me one cold snowy day of January 1996
in Kansas City, US, when I entered a marvellous children's bookshop called "The Giant Reptile"
with the kids I was Au Pair for and sat down with them for the first of many story times there.
From that moment on, I knew this was the world I wanted to work in. Although it took another
couple of years before it actually happened!I am passionate about books and languages and I believe
selling rights is all about knowing which illustrations/genre of books suit which markets and finding
the right publisher for the right book.I have met wonderful publishers, authors and illustrators
throughout the years and I am hoping to help many more books to be translated internationally.
Because there are lots of little gems out there waiting to be discovered and translated!
