Profile Summary

Amy studied English literature at Oxford University, completing both undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in the subject.

She did a short spell at Greene and Heaton, a large London agency, before returning to Oxford to join the team at FB. She manages the company's website and digital rights, but she is also building her own list and is keen to acquire good quality clients.

It's probably worth trying a good range of material on Amy, but her particular interests are literary fiction, intelligent women's fiction and YA / New Adult / crossover fiction. We don't have any data on Amy's current clients (in any event, there aren't many and may not be entirely representative of her range of interests), but we will publish further information as soon as we have it.

More info on this agency:
Founded in 1988 by Felicity Bryan, our agency represents a wide variety of distinguished authors writing adult non-fiction, fiction and children's literature. Based in Oxford, we see ourselves very much as an international agency selling rights in our authors' books throughout the world. We also work closely with a select number of film and TV agents. We pride ourselves in the personal attention we give to our clients and when The Society of Authors held a poll of how its members rated their agents we were voted number two.
