Veronique Baxter

Veronique joined David Higham in 1999 after studying Law at Bristol University. She was made a director of the company in 2007. She is extremely proud of the wide range of authors she represents, in adult fiction, children’s books and non-fiction, including many award-winners.

Veronique is drawn to writing that is both distinctive and fluid in both fiction and non-fiction. In fiction she is currently looking for: literary fiction, fiction with a speculative edge,  historical fiction that surprises and upmarket crime and thrillers. In non-fiction, she is particularly drawn to feminism, history, current affairs, memoir and narrative non-fiction.  

In children’s books, Veronique is looking for standout middle-grade and YA with heart or adventure, or preferably both!

If you would like to submit your work to Veronique, please email: You should include a covering letter, a synopsis and the first three chapters of your book.

Please do not send children’s/YA submissions to Veronique’s direct email address or manuscripts inbox. Children’s submissions should be sent to following the guidelines. Submissions sent to the incorrect inbox will be deleted without being read.

Veronique is assisted by Sara Langham.
