Alice Williams

Alice joined David Higham Associates in 2002 after studying philosophy at Cambridge. She is proud to represent novelists, poets and writers of non-fiction, and she is passionate about working with talented writers and illustrators of books for children and young adults.

She is especially keen to consider fresh, funny fiction for children of all ages, including humorous YA for boys. Also, inspiring middle-grade fiction – she would love to find, for instance, a high-drama swim-squad series, or a heart-warming, authentic pony series. She is also on the lookout for edgier writing with big themes, whether real world or fantasy.

She is always interested to hear from illustrators with picture book ideas in development.

She welcomes submissions from writers and illustrators from communities currently under-represented in children’s books.  #ownvoices
