The Kneerim & Williams Literary Agency has announced that Katherine Flynn is joining founders Jill Kneerim and John "Ike" Taylor Williams as the group’s newest partner. Flynn, based in the agency's Boston office, joined K&W in 2008 after pursuing her Ph.D. in history at Brown University and following time at Sanford J. Greenburger Associates and Bedford/St. Martin's Press.

"I'm thrilled, or, as Jill likes to say, 'over the moon,' to become a partner," Flynn said in a statement.

Flynn is the publishing consultant for Harvard University's Radcliffe Institute, and serves on the board of the Boston chapter of the Women's National Book Association. She represents authors of fiction and nonfiction, and handles film and television rights for a number of the agency's clients.

“Katherine’s calm, insightful, and collaborative presence at the agency has marked her as a valued colleague and potential partner from her earliest days,” Ike Williams said in a statement. “This view is equally shared by her growing number of devoted authors.”
