We’re excited to welcome Leah Freeman-Haskin to the Transatlantic fold. She is represented by Fiona Kenshole.
Leah Freeman-Haskin is a children’s writer in Los Angeles. Born in Boston, MA, Leah holds a degree in English and studio art from Boston College. As the daughter of an artist, she spent many years traveling and living abroad, continuously inspired by art and literature. Though she spent much of her youth writing poetry and creative fiction, it wasn’t until the birth of her son three years ago that she rediscovered her love for children’s picture books. Leah is currently working on her first children’s book, a heartfelt story about defining beauty and self-acceptance.
We’re riding high since adding Emma Teal Laukitis and Claire Neaton, aka THE SALMON SISTERS to Transatlantic’s client roster. These two young women have already lived a life dreams are made of and there’s so much more for them on the horizon. Having grown up on one of the world’s most unique and remote places — the Aleutian Islands of Alaska, they still work on their family’s boats commercial fishing for salmon and halibut in the Bering Sea.
Their love of life at sea and their deep respect for the ocean is apparent in everything they do. When they’re not fishing, they’re designing original sea inspired clothing, home goods and adventure gear for use on and off the water, marketing Wild Alaska seafood, supporting their Give Fish Project, writing, cooking, and generally advancing awareness about the importance of sustainable fisheries and the role of wild sustainable seafood in our food chain. These bold seafaring young women are two of the world’s most natural advocates for the vitality of a fisherman’s livelihood, and we are proud to represent them and their future writing and publishing endeavors.
