Nelle Andrew is a primary agent whose special area of interest is fiction: literary novels with great writing and a strong plot, historical, crime, suspense, thriller, speculative and clever women’s fiction as well Book Club/Reading Group. Above all she loves resonant novels with strong narratives that have something to say.
She does do some narrative non fiction – mainly moving memoirs, clever ideas books and hidden histories that chime with contemporary themes. She also loves clever true crime ala Serial or In Cold Blood.
Nelle is a Bookseller rising Star (2016) and also a published novelist. She has discovered New York Times and Sunday Times Bestsellers as well as several Richard and Judy Book Club Picks. She has a particular affinity for debuts of any age as she personally knows the struggle to get published and she is keen to find those voices who she can champion into long and productive careers. As such as she also sits on the board of both the Lucy Cavendish Prize for unpublished writers and the Sunday Times/PFD Young Writer’s Award.
