Linda Pratt

Wernick & Pratt Agency, LLC

Linda Pratt received a BBA in finance from the University of Texas in Austin. After briefly exploring a career on a bond trading desk, she began working at Sheldon Fogelman Agency. In working at the agency, Linda finally found “her people” in the world of children’s publishing, and has never looked back. Initially working primarily on the operations side of the business, doing everything from royalty analysis to annual accountings for literary estates, Linda was later promoted to agent. This opportunity allowed her to combine her business acumen with her love of the artistic side of creating books, including working with clients editorially. She works with both authors and illustrators who create work in all genres of children literature, both fiction and nonfiction. Among Linda’s clients are Amy Young, Steve Light, Kathryn Erskine, Richard Peck, Charise Mericle Harper, and Amy June Bates. Linda has also enjoyed introducing new talent, and has worked with clients like Aaron Becker, Augusta Scattergood, Larissa Theule, Angela Dominguez (as both author & illustrator) and Saki Tanaka since placing their debuts.
