We are thrilled to welcome RIDDHI PAREKH this morning, our newest agent and new International Rights Manager.
Riddhi comes to us from Franklin & Siegal Associates where she worked as Children’s Book Scout for five years. She earned her MFA in Creative Writing for Children at The New School in 2012, before which she was a journalist in Mumbai, India.
As International Rights Manager, Riddhi will handle our translation and UK rights business. She takes over this role from Tamar Rydzinski. (Not that Tamar is going anywhere. She’s not—she’ll just be committing more of her time to her own list of fabulous writers.)
Riddhi will also be building her own list of writers for representation here in the U.S. and worldwide.
We’re looking forward to a whole new era in a part of the business—foreign rights—we love. Welcome, Riddhi!
