"I had absolutely no hesitation nor reservation whatsoever in signing with Linda at Langton's International Agency to represent my literary work worldwide. Apart from being a thorough professional with an amazing work ethic, Linda understands what is needed to encourage an author to fulfill the potential of a given work-in-progress without dampening enthusiasm for a project. Most importantly for me, Linda recognizes that honest, frank, constructive advice is not necessarily the only way forward. She seems to know instinctively that the solitary, sometimes destructive, nature of a writer's muse may mean what is needed is caring not criticism - and that is a rare gift indeed!"
