Lina Langlee has been promoted to literary agent at the Kate Nash Literary Agency, while Robbie Guillory also steps up in a series of changes at the firm.
Langlee, who has a background in publishing, had a “very successful” first year at the firm after joining as a junior agent and was shortlisted for Agent of the Year at the Romantic Novelists’ Association's Industry Awards in October.
Literary agent Kate Nash said: “Lina has taken on a variety of talented authors and struck excellent deals for several, all within her first year at our agency. She has moved award winning Christina Courtney to Headline and sold debut author Andreina Cordani to Atom. Lina has quickly built close and trusting relationships with her clients and with editors.”
Meanwhile, managing assistant Guillory has been appointed to the junior literary agent role.
Managing director Justin Nash said: “Robbie has quickly shown he is a talent spotter as well as having authors best interests at the centre of everything he does. Robbie will be working now to start to acquire his own authors as well as continuing to support Kate Nash’s client list.”
Alice Togneri, who has experience in the not-for-profit sector, has joined the agency as finance manager.
