Hello,

I've had an approach from another writer saying that Babette Sparr is forming her own agency and is looking for clients. I can't find much (next to nothing) online - except for this page

http://www.kraytek.com/literary_agents_-us.htm


which states that she was with Sandra Dijkstra Literary Agency - however, looking at the site now, she doesn't appear on it.

Does anyone know anything about Ms Sparr at all? she's not on P&E either.

Thanks

She was a subrights agent at Dijkstra (film options, etc.). Nothing yet about her hanging her own shingle, though.

New agency is Kessler Sparr Literary Agency, with Robin Kessler. No website yet.

linkedin now says it is "The Sparr Literary Agency"

I can't tell what genres she handles. It looks like there were some sales back when it was Kessler Sparr.

Nope, I couldn't figure that out. There's a linkedin for a Robin Kessler, but it is a different one (long time HR consultant and "career coach").

Some conference activity last year, but I'm not finding any clients or sales after she parted with Kessler. Anyone else?

Last call ... only mentions are in conference listings, and those cease early '14. Anyone have recent contact?

ETA: Going by her LinkedIn profile, agency closed in '15.
