I am a native of Dublin and started my publishing career at Poolbeg Press, before moving to London in 1991, working at a number of leading publishers, including Harper Collins and Hodder.

During the ‘90s and early ‘00s I held a number of high profile sales and marketing positions and worked closely with many authors and agents. This was my inspiration to change to ‘the other side’ and in 2003 I became a literary agent.

I am very proud to represent a wide range of authors and I specialise in fiction, especially stories with an emotional hook, crime and thrillers, memoir, business, sport and MBS.

My broad knowledge of the book industry in the UK, Ireland and international markets is a wonderful asset in my work with authors and publishers.

My assistant is Rebecca Ritchie.
