I'm the founder and Managing Director of Curtis Brown Creative, the first and only creative writing school to be run by a literary agency. I also represent some of Curtis Brown’s most prominent and best-loved classic authors, working with my colleague Norah Perkins. And I’m the Book Department's Head of Book Contracts, negotiating the broad basis of our authors' publishing agreements and overseeing individual deals.
Outside Curtis Brown, I'm the author of five novels, which have been published around the world in over twenty languages. I have served on the management committee for the Association of Authors' Agents.
