About Us

The Black Cat Agency is a children’s books agency founded by us, Göksun Bayraktar and Nazli Gürkas, based in London and Istanbul. Over the many years we’ve spent working as literary agents we’ve both developed serious cases of Stendhal Syndrome*. We’ve come to terms with the fact that it’s incurable, and have decided to let this love of beauty be our guide instead!


Our agency is dedicated to connecting beautiful children’s books and brilliant illustrators with publishers across the globe. We love stories that set your imagination alight, and illustrations that make your heart beat faster. With a little help, we hope our gorgeous literary butterflies can land in little readers’ hands all over the world, enchanting and inspiring the next generation.
