I am a literary agent in London with clients ranging from genre fiction authors, as well as literary and commercial fiction, children's writers and non-fiction authors too. I have previously worked for Tibor Jones, with Wilbur Smith's co-writers, and for Jo Unwin Literary Agency, working with clients such as Eliza Clark, Caleb Femi and Jack Meggitt-Phillips. I also managed a UK based children's fiction packaging studio, using the same model as Working Partners, and creating successful children's series such as Agatha Oddly (HarperCollins).
I am very editorially focused as an agent, working collaboratively with my clients to get their manuscripts into a publication-ready state and helping them to achieve their vision. I have also worked with HarperCollins and Welbeck on the creation and editorial process of several children's series.
As an editor, I am both story and detail oriented. I love to bring out the absolute best in authors, and to share ideas in a collaborative way. I hope my love of writing and my deep respect for authors makes me fun to work with!
