Profile Summary

Before joining Felicity Bryan as an agent in 2016, I worked for five years at Conville & Walsh Literary Agency as a Junior Agent. At Felicity Bryan I am actively building a list of non-fiction and fiction clients, with a focus on debut authors. I love non-fiction by authors who are passionate – perhaps even bordering on obsessive – about a topic, and I have a particular interest in books about science, nature, history, travel, sport, health, women, art and music. On the fiction side, I represent literary and book-club titles. It’s difficult to define what I am looking for in a novel besides fantastic writing, but I always seem to be drawn to unique and diverse voices, atmospheric settings, coming-of-age stories and books that capture the zeitgeist. I also host a monthly books radio show and podcast called Literary Friction.
