Profile Summary

Amber Caravéo is the co-founder of Skylark Literary – http://www.skylark-literary.com/ – a specialist agency that seeks and supports the very best in Children’s and YA fiction. Prior to Skylark, Amber was Editorial Director for Orion Children’s Books where she worked with a host of prize-winning and bestselling authors such as Caroline Lawrence, Liz Kessler and Holly Black. She has also worked for Random House Children’s Books and for Working Partners, where she edited and developed the million-copy selling series phenomenon, Rainbow Magic.

Amber is keen to find great new voices in Children's fiction for all ages from first readers (for ages 5+) to YA/crossover novels. She has a particular passion for beautiful, lyrical writing and multi-layered stories. Humour is also welcome where allied to great writing, and she particularly enjoys a good mystery/detective story. Finally, a tale that is rooted in myth or folklore, particularly where those elements are handled in a new or innovative way, is always of interest.
