When Nalini Akolekar was growing up her mother would frequently ask her in exasperation, “What are you going to do with your life? All you ever do is read romance novels!” Little did she know, her daughter was building a career for herself—one captivating page at a time.
Nalini joined Spencerhill Associates after a lengthy editorial career and several years in advertising sales. Agenting provided the perfect opportunity for combining her editorial instincts with her sales, marketing, and business experience.
Nalini specializes in romance and women’s fiction in the adult market, but she also loves thrillers. Many of the new authors she’s worked with have gone on to sell multiple books to major publishers.
