I am actively looking to build my list and am primarily interested in good quality literary fiction/literary commercial cross-over fiction, pyschological thriller and young adult novels. In the fiction I am looking for, I would love something with an original voice, a great sense of character and a compelling plot. I want a strong narrative and a novel that can either be dramatic, or more insightful but whatever it is, it must be the kind of book you read for pleasure and would thorouhly enjoy regardless of the subject matter. Re: non fiction I am only like narrative non fiction, cookery and entertainment. I am particularly interested in debuts and in launching talented fiction writers into what I hope will be long and productive careers. The best way of knowing my taste is that my favourite contemporary books are: The Secret History; Middlesex; I Capture the Castle; The Help; World War Z and A Thousand Acres. I will accept email submissions but please do NOT send: Sci Fi/Fantasy, graphic novels, very young children’s, or chick lit.
