In my many years as an agent I have represented everything from scholarly historians, scientists and world-class journalists to best-selling cooks, singers and ballet dancers. What they have in common is that they fascinate me, I love working with them and I feel I can sell their books well in an increasingly varied and international market. While I do represent some wonderful fiction, I am better known for non-fiction. I think my background in journalism makes me good at helping authors shape ideas for books. I love finding a gap in the market and finding just the right author to write the book.
