I joined Curtis Brown in November 2011. I help to maintain Curtis Brown’s social media presence on Facebook and assist the Book Department with whatever they need.
I am part of the New Writing team at Curtis Brown, which is amazing because it means I get to spend my time doing what I love most in the world, that is to say, sit there with my nose in a book! I work closely with senior agents Sheila Crowley and Gordon Wise, reading and responding to new writers’ work, and love all book genres, from Jilly Cooper to Margaret Atwood. I also assist Esther Boateng in welcoming Curtis Brown's guests.
It’s a pretty amazing job – I meet and chat with my favourite writers and actors on a daily basis, read manuscripts and watch the most wonderful projects unfold from beginning to end, with the finished product frequently gracing my bookshelf or television screen. I worked as a journalist and critic for years, and still write reviews whenever I get the chance.
