Laura Dail Literary Agency


LDLA welcomes Elana Roth Parker

We are proud and excited to welcome Elana Roth Parker to the agency. Elana represents children’s books—from picture books to YA—including, among others, the #1 New York Times bestselling juggernaut that is author Kiera Cass.

Elana joins me, Laura, as well as Tamar Rydzinski, Vice President and Director of Rights, at the agency. Tamar represents another #1 New York Times bestselling author, the phenomenal Sarah J. Maas.

With Sarah J. Maas, and now Kiera Cass, as well as long-time client, Sarah Mlynowski, and many others, the agency represents a lot of blockbuster talent in children’s fiction. We are thrilled to manage these major careers.
We also represent journalists, chefs, doctors, crime novelists, comedians, writers of historical fiction, and more. But obviously, the addition of Elana solidifies our expertise in and commitment to children’s and YA publishing.

I couldn’t be more excited about this new association. It’s a pleasure to work with both Elana and Tamar every day and its an honor to work with of our extraordinary writers.
