Priya Doraswamy’s love for books, people, and background in law makes her career as a literary agent the perfect fit for her passions and talents. Priya enjoys working with publishers and writers from around the world including the United States, United Kingdom, Singapore, and India. Although physically in the EST, her work hours are zone-free. She does admit to occasionally losing track of time zones and waking a writer with an early morning phone call. Priya has been an agent for several years and has sold several books worldwide. She is drawn to all genre of fiction and nonfiction. Prior to her agency career, she was a practicing lawyer in the United States.
Originally from Bangalore, India, Priya immigrated to the New York area twenty-five years ago. For a period of time she relocated with her family to Singapore, and there, began her career as a literary agent. She founded Lotus Lane Literary in May 2013, and continues her journey with writers and publishers.
Judi Vallano Campbell brings over 20 years of marketing experience to the Lotus Lane team. She began her career in Washington DC working for grassroots organizations including The Points of Light Foundation and a nonprofit group tasked with raising funds to build The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial, which she is proud to say, stands near the Capitol building today. She went on to gain global marketing experience while working for a Hong Kong- based relocation company in Singapore, and most recently as Director of Marketing for a technology company headquartered in Sweden.
By day you can find her developing marketing plans, pitching stories to the media, designing websites, blogging and tweeting, but at night with her kids in bed, she can be found curled up with a good book.
