Lara Perkins is an Associate Agent with Andrea Brown Literary Agency representing authors and illustrators of picture books, middle grade, and YA fiction. She has been with ABLA since 2010 and is also the agency's Digital Manager.
In picture books, Lara is actively seeking picture book author-illustrators who bring distinct perspectives to their work, particularly perspectives that are underrepresented in children's literature. She is drawn to bold and colorful art, a playful use of texture and media, and kid-appealing humor and heart. She is also on the hunt for narrative nonfiction and biographies that combine fascinating real-life stories with exceptional visual potential.
