I’ve worked in publishing for over 20 years: in translation rights at John Murray, then joining Sheil Land as an agent in 2004. For 17 years I looked after the translation interests of Sheil Land Associates' extensive and varied list of authors, and also acted as a primary agent. I became a primary agent full-time at the start of 2022. I take on one or two new writers a year, and when doing so look for projects with wide international appeal. 

Clients include; Neil Chapman, MacKenzie Common, Catherine cooper, Rachel Elliott, Michelle Frances, Jane Fraser, Kate Goldbeck, Janice Hallett, Felicity Hayes-McCoy, Charlie Hodges, Ann Featherstone, Julia Lee, Cas Lester, Robert J Lloyd, Jane Lythell, The Brothers McLeod, Paterson Joseph, Robert Rigby, Catherine Robertson, Eva Schloss, Sarah Sigal, Julie Soto, Fenella Smith, Sarah Steele, Laura Summers and Sue Teddern.

What I'm looking for...

I represent writing across the spectrum of fiction and non-fiction: at the moment I'm particularity interested in fiction and memoir which will ignite reading group discussions, and I'll always have a soft spot for a good romance.
