Nelle Andrew has been at PFD for five years. As an agent she is actively building her list and is primarily interested in literary fiction/literary commercial cross-over fiction, crime and pyschological thriller and upper end YA. Regarding non fiction, she is interested in narrative non fiction, cookery and entertainment. She worked at Pan Macmillan before joining PFD and has a BA Hons from Warwick University in English with Creative Writing and an MPhil from Trinity College Dublin in Creative Writing with Publishing. Before she was made an agent she was published as a fiction author in her own right hence her particular empathy for debut authors who need the attention to detail and primary care so necessary to establish their careers. She will happily accept email submissions but please do NOT send: Sci Fi, graphic novels, very young children’s, or chick lit. She aims to come back to all her submissions within 2 months and if not please do give her a gentle nudge.

****

“What I enjoy the most in a submission is quality of writing and brilliant characterisation. When writers know that it is characters and their decisions which drive plot rather than the other way round they create something very special indeed. I am looking to be enthralled and compelled to read on and when I find something like that I will stop at nothing to give them the best of my time and expertise and most of all care.”
