Jessica Hare has been promoted to agent in the Children’s Books Department at The Agency (London).
She will continue to work with Hilary Delamere, looking after the department’s authors and illustrators. She joined The Agency in 2017 as an assistant.
Children’s books at The Agency span the range from YA novels such as Malorie Blackman's Noughts & Crosses through to classic fiction, including Paddington Bear by Michael Bond, and picture books.
Hare's promotion follows last week’s announcement that management and production firm Avalon has acquired a majority stake in the company.
