I’ve worked in book publishing for (terrifyingly) nearly 20 years. Recently I set up my own literary agency and am actively looking for new writers.
Previously I worked at Penguin, Orion and Curtis Brown. At Penguin I was an Editorial Director for Viking where my authors included (fiction) Naomi Alderman, Karen Joy Fowler, Catherine O’Flynn, Marisha Pessl, Elif Shafak, Patricia Wastvedt and (non-fiction) Susan Cain, Hadley Freeman and Felicity Lawrence. I was an editor for a long time and if I think an author shows promise I am happy to help shape their book.
I’ve also ghostwritten a memoir for Hodder. This gave me a newfound appreciation of just how difficult writing a book can be…

I don’t mind whether we meet in person or talk via Skype, whatever suits you. I can offer two hours a month for a period of time and we can split that up in a way that makes sense for us both.
- In person
- By email
- By Skype/telephone.
