-- About me --
I’ve worked in publishing for 17 years: in translation rights at John Murray, then joining Sheil Land as an agent in 2004. I look after the international publishing interests of Sheil Land Associates's extensive and varied list of authors, and also act as a primary agent. I take on one or two new writers a year as a primary agent, and when doing so look for projects with wide international appeal. For more about me on Linkedin, please click here
