I have worked in publishing for nearly twenty years as an agent, commissioning editor and ghostwriter. I spent ten years at Penguin, where I was an Editorial Director for Viking, acquiring fiction and non-fiction. I have also worked for Orion, for one of the biggest literary agencies in the UK, for digital publisher Bookouture and for a speakers bureau.

I work with a wide range of specialist agencies for the sale of rights around the world.
