I joined DHA in 2007, and am a director of the company. Before becoming an agent I worked on the publishing side for fifteen years, in publicity at Hodder & Stoughton, and as a commissioning editor at Little, Brown and then Simon & Schuster.
My list is primarily non-fiction, and includes leading historians, journalists and commentators. I like books that say something new about the way the world works, and welcome approaches from experts in their field who want to communicate their ideas to a wider audience.
I’m open to new projects in most genres, especially history, current affairs, biography and memoir, narrative non-fiction, sport, popular culture, popular science and psychology, smart thinking and business books with a strong story. I am a member of the Advisory Committee of the Cundill History Prize.
In fiction, I like novels that grab the attention, whether literary or commercial, but please note I do not represent any YA authors, or science fiction/fantasy.
