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), Renee Knight (Disclaimer), Jessica Cornwell (The Serpent Papers), Tamar Cohen (The Broken), and the estate of Daphne du Maurier (Rebecca, My Cousin Rachel).
Non-fiction includes journalism but is concentrated on cookery, with authors Anna Jones (A Modern Way to Eat), Tessa Kiros (Twelve), Chris Bianco (Pizzeria Bianco) and Mark Sargeant (My Kind of Cooking).
I am based in London, selling direct in both the United Kingdom and the United States, and am on the board for the Women's Prize for Fiction.
