I’m looking for crime, thriller, psychological thriller, commercial fiction and reading group fiction. I like strong stories, interesting settings (contemporary or historical) and high concept novels.  I especially love books that make me cry. Please note that I do not represent SFF or books for children. Work in those genres will not be read.



I’m looking for popular psychology and science, smart thinking, history, nature writing, lifestyle and wellbeing. Big ideas and subjects that get people talking. I particularly enjoy helping experts translate their work for a general audience.
