Literary Agent.

Hi there!

I’m an agent at Ladderbird Literary. I cut my teeth in publishing at publishing houses like Scholastic and Insight Editions representing foreign and subsidiary rights before joining Ladderbird in 2019. 


I read widely across genre and age range and I’m particularly looking for queer and POC authors taking on genre tropes in commercial fiction.
