I had just finished training as a barrister when literary interests took me away from the law. I interned at both the Wylie Agency and Curtis Brown before officially joining Curtis Brown in 2005. I began my career assisting Camilla Hornby and Elizabeth Sheinkman before moving to build my own list whilst working alongside Vivienne Schuster.
My fiction tastes cover historical, commercial women's thrillers and crime - and authors include Richard and Judy Book Club pick Rosamund Lupton (Sister), Tamar Cohen (The Mistress's Revenge), Toby Forward (Dragonborn) and the estate of Daphne du Maurier (Rebecca, My Cousin Rachel).
Non-fiction includes journalism but is concentrated on cookery, with authors Ravinder Bhogal (Cook in Boots), Chris Bianco (Pizzeria Bianco), Mark Sargeant (My Kind of Cooking), Sam Stern (Student Cookbook) and Kay Plunkett-Hogge (Leon: Family & Friends), straddling both the worlds of books and television, and music with Sunday Times bestseller Alfie Boe (Alfie: My Story).
I am based between London and New York selling direct in both the United Kingdom and the United States, and am on the board for the Women's Prize for Fiction.
