I represent literary fiction, quality non-fiction as well as suspense, crime, thrillers and well-written books which defy category.
The novelists and short story writers on my list include winners of major literary awards and debut authors. My aim is to create a boutique environment within a larger agency where writers can develop long-term careers. My non-fiction clients include journalists, academics, nature writers, historians, human rights activists, campaigners and visual artists.
There is an international dimension to my list, but whether at a local or international level, I am primarily interested in championing excellent writing, intelligent and nuanced thinking, great and emotionally-engaging stories, and ideas with a potential to have social or cultural impact.
Before joining Curtis Brown, I was an agent at International Creative Management, working in the book and film departments.
My assistant is Lucy Morris.
