The Team

LORA FOUNTAIN

Lora Lucca

Lora 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

Léo is our Contracts and Royalty Manager and 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.

CHEMSA TORTCHINSKI

Chemsa was born in Grenoble, raised in Normandy, and is of Berber, Senegalese, Tunisian and Ch’ti descent. Yet her heart and soul is in Russia where she lived for five years. She holds a PhD in political science with a major in Russian studies. She enjoys reading, gardening, and following American politics, a close second passion after Russia (yeah, she is aware of the irony…)
