I’m looking for all sorts of fiction including crime, thriller, women's fiction, saga, reading group fiction, historical fiction and literary fiction. I like strong stories, interesting settings and high concept novels. I especially love books that make me cry. Please note that I don't represent science fiction (unless it's literary/speculative) or fantasy and I'm not taking on any children's or YA fiction at present. Work in those categories will not be read.


I’m looking for narrative non-fiction including popular psychology and science, smart thinking, history, economics, memoir, lifestyle and wellbeing. Big ideas and subjects that get people talking. I have a strong track record of helping experts translate their work for a general audience.
