Agent: Ariella Feiner
I started working at PFD in 2006 before moving to United Agents and I am now nurturing my own client list which includes many bestselling, critically acclaimed and award winning authors.
One of the joys of being a literary agent is the range of books I can work on and I enjoy reading from a wide selection of genres. I want manuscripts which make me sit up and take notice of them, whether it be through beautiful prose, a hugely original idea or, at their best, stories which make me sob.
I am on the lookout for anything which is extremely well-written, but in particular: reading group books, crime and psychological thrillers, young adult novels, historical fiction, exciting non-fiction such as biographies about strong women in history or mouth-watering cook books and anything, like The Lovely Bones, Room or The Time Traveller's Wife, which breaks the mould.
For submissions please email a synopsis together with either the first three chapters if it is a novel or a proposal for a non-fiction book directly to me at email@example.com.
