I represent primarily children's fiction from picture books through to young adult novels but I also represent some adult fiction and non-fiction.
I studied English literature at Leeds University, with a year at McGill University in Montreal. After a brief stint of work experience at a Publishing PR company, I joined Curtis Brown in 2003, sold my first book in 2006 and have been building my client list since then. I have been fortunate to work with a huge range of incredibly talented writers, both established voices and debut authors and I am actively looking for new authors to team up with at the same time as continuing to work with my wonderful existing clients.
Discovering new talent is always a thrill and I'm looking for a manuscript which carries me away completely - a story I'm dying to return to whenever there's a spare moment in the day, (there aren't many!).
There's more information on my blog although I don't update it frequently enough - probably because I'm more into reading than writing!
