Nadeen Gayle is a literary agent with the Serendipity Literary Agency. After representing clients in law for over 7 years, Nadeen Gayle brings her zeal for representation and championing voices to book publishing. Prior to graduating from Hofstra law school, Nadeen majored in English with a Mass Communications minor at Clark Atlanta University and was a very active participant in the English department’s annual Writers Conference. After receiving her BA in English, Nadeen taught briefly in the Atlanta public school system. Her short stint with students and parents in Atlanta shaped her focus with connecting to both children and adults after which she worked as counsel for Administration for Children Services. As a parent herself, Nadeen’s work with children and parents shapes her dual interest in both YA and Adult titles.
Nadeen’s law career was not without its share of great stories. Her love for entertainment and media took her to Court TV where she worked as a production assistant during its heyday. She is a big fan of narratives that are seamlessly written yet with ideas that might be stripped from the headlines. In addition, her experience in the Congressional Black Caucus Boot-Camp training furthered her interest in politics and the deal behind the deal.
From studying literature, to teaching, then practicing law Nadeen’s experience has sharpened her ability to see the potential for your project from many angles be it fresh storytelling or it various marketing reach. Her advocacy skills translate well into agenting. Once she’s on your side, watch out!
When she’s not agenting she is developing and coordinating events for numerous organizations including Delta Sigma Theta, Girls Scouts, or her school’s alumni organization and a host of others. Nadeen is a native Wilmington DE and has been a New Yorker since 2001.
