Mostly I read fiction, and any non-fiction I represent must be on a subject that I believe will have international appeal. The authors I represent and others who are listed under my bio give you an idea of the range of my taste. I love books of fiction or non-fiction that explore globally relevant themes, that transport the reader on a surprising journey across boundaries of culture, and sometimes even of genre; storytelling that dismantles walls and builds bridges, challenging and deepening the reader's understanding of self and other, of society, language, art, or humanity.
I also love a thriller or suspense novel that hooks me from the first page to the last.I never thought I would be an agent of young adult or middle grade fiction until Jack Cheng delivered his manuscript to me, See You in the Cosmos, with an 11-year-old narrator who grabbed my heart and also made me laugh, and that I quickly sold in the US and UK and to several foreign publishers. So now I am interested in new voices for kids, that will entertain and enlighten adult readers too. If you've written something you think I will enjoy reading then contact me with the form below, describing your work and your background. If I am interested I will respond within one week. If you've sent me a manuscript, or more than fifty pages, then please give me at least six – eight weeks to respond.
