Tessa David is an Agent in the Books Division. She joined PFD in 2014 as a graduate in English Literature from Edinburgh University. She is interested in literary fiction, historical fiction, psychological thrillers and literary/ commercial crossover fiction. At the moment she is particularly on the lookout for books that will make her cry and laugh at the same time, and ultimately leave her smiling. She also has a weak spot for books set in wild and remote locations – think tiny islands or windswept moors; add in a murder or a love story (or both) and she’s hooked. On the children’s side, she is particularly looking for fast paced and adventurous middle grade with series potential. In terms of non-fiction she is interested in nature writing, forgotten pieces of history, popular science, cookery, and any and all types of narrative non-fiction – two of her favourite books are When Breath Becomes Air and The Shepherd’s Life.
