The Team

Lora LuccaLora Fountain was born in America and is of Irish, Welsh and English descent. She moved to Paris in 1985 and founded her literary agency in 1987. Lora’s taste in literature is rather eclectic, as demonstrated by the books you’ll see on this site, with graphic novels being a particular specialty.


Léo Tortchinski, our Contract and Royalty Manager, arrived in Paris from Moscow. His routinely wandering around book shops and reading all kinds of literature eventually led him to The Lora Fountain Agency.





Lucy Joyce is our current intern. Spending six months in Paris as part of her degree in Modern Languages at Newcastle University, she is excited to learn more about the diverse range of literature at Lora Fountain.


We take on interns, so if you are an undergraduate student feel free to contact us to find out more information. One of our previous interns is now the Rights and Licensing Manager at Frankfurt Book Fair, and another is an agent with the Michael Meller Agency in Munich.
