29 Jun Celebrating 2 Seas Agency’s 11th Anniversary!
I can’t believe it’s been so many years already, I feel like they went by in a flash!

June 28, 2011 is the official “birth-day” of 2 Seas Agency: it was the day I sent out our first monthly newsletter.
That day, less than 6 months after I’d left my job at Editions Stock in Paris to move to California, I let the publishing world know that:
1) I had not joined a hippie community;
2) I wasn’t I spending my days learning how to surf (that was quite a disaster); but rather,
3) I was back in international publishing! (though it felt like I’d never left)
Many ups and downs, challenges and celebrations, book fairs and other trips, and numerous milestones later, I am enjoying it more than ever!
My deepest gratitude goes out to those who have supported my journey and have become an integral part of the 2 Seas DNA: our amazing team & clients, international editors, co-agents, scouts, translators, podcast guests, and all of you inspiring publishing people from around the world.
A special shout-out goes to Senior Agent Chrys, who celebrated her 7th anniversary with 2 Seas less than a week ago!
Love, and here’s to seeing you all again this fall. New York, Paris, Amsterdam, Munich and of course the Frankfurt Book Fair are on the agenda!
