Overview

I’m a children’s & YA Agent with four years experience and prior experience in bookselling. I can provide query reviews and editorial assessments for books for all ages from picture books to YA. I can work on some adult genres - specifically commercial fiction and fantasy. I work editorially with all my authors at the agency and am particularly good at getting books ready for submission to publishers and agents.

I will read your manuscript and give you pointers on where to make it stronger - plot points, characters, storyline etc. - and use my knowledge of the children's market to help you find where your book would be placed. I'll work with you to get your MS ready for submission to agents, and am also very happy to do a query letter review to help you stand out among the hundreds of submissions agents get every day.

A hilarious and charming story of a girl, a high-rise, and one very inappropriate pet, from the author of the Mango & Bambang series. Kizzy thought she had dreamed of every possible way she might get a pony. She'd never expected to pick one up from the supermarket. But wherever the plump pony munching on flapjacks in the bakery aisle has come from, Kizzy knows he's everything she's ever wished... read more
