Please note that I am not the right person to represent works of non-fiction, literary fiction, short stories, erotica, screenplays, poetry, hard SFF (speculative is fine though) or anything younger than middle grade children’s fiction.

I particularly welcome submissions from writers from communities that have been underrepresented in mainstream publishing.

πŸ“š Bookclub Fiction β˜•οΈ

Stories with talking points, that make me think or force my friends into reading too so I can talk about it with them! My all-time faves are Khaled Hosseini, Matt Haig and Mark Haddon.

πŸ’• Romance πŸ³οΈβ€πŸŒˆ

Including LGBTQ+ romance, YA romance and romantic comedy. I would love an adult Heartstopper or Love Frankie, as well as rom com that is laugh-out-loud funny.

πŸ₯Ά Thriller πŸšͺ

I’m always looking for anything hooky within thriller for both adults and young adults. Locked room thrillers, like The Sanatorium and The Guest List, are especially welcome.

πŸ€” Psychological Thriller 🧠

I’m looking for psychological thriller and domestic suspense which is twisty and has a unique hook. I love an unreliable narrator and the feeling of not knowing who to trust. Shock, surprise and confuse me in the best ways!

🏰 Historical Fiction/Saga πŸ›‘

I prefer HF that is character-driven rather than action or β€˜battlefield’ heavy and I have a particular penchant for WW2 historical fiction (think Markus Zusak and Heather Morris).

Morally grey, complex and flawed characters are a plus!

🦊 Cosy Crime πŸ•΅οΈ

I’d absolutely love cosy crime from *any* period, whether contemporary like Janice Hallett and Richard Osman, traditional Golden Age murder mystery, or historical crime. The more suspects and red herrings, the better!

I am looking for hooky cosy crime and historical fiction set in/around WW2.

Morally grey, complex and flawed characters are a plus!
