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.

Veronique is assisted by Sara Langham.
