I read English Literature and Latin at Manchester University. I have been an agent for over 20 years and in 2005 I set up LBA with Luigi and I’m a director of the company. In 2018, I won the RNA Literary Agent of the Year award.
I read many books for my English Literature degree at the University of Cambridge, and many more for my MA in Medieval Studies at the University of Toronto. I became a literary agent so that I'd never run out of things to read.
I studied English Literature as an undergraduate at the University of Edinburgh, where I won the Saintsbury Prize, then did an MA in English and American Fiction at the University of York. After graduating, I trained as a copy editor at Mills & Boon.
