Profile Summary

Claudia has been at Greene & Heaton since 2009. While she is an agent with her own list, she works closely with the 'presenter' side of the business, focusing on having clients branch out from just writing into the world of TV, film, and radio. It seems only natural, as a result, that her list is comprised mostly of chefs and lifestyle gurus.

Like any good agent, Claudia mines popular blogs and reality shows for clients such as the youngest participant of The Great British Bake Off, Martha Collison, Live Well With Less blogger Regina Wong, and popular flower arrangers The Flower Appreciation Society. In her agency bio, Claudia states that she is interested in a wide range of non-fiction topics, but the make-up of her client list suggests she is very focused on her niche area of cookery, with a sideline of lifestyle writing. Having said that, she does represent journalist Lewis Goodall, indicating she is willing to take on authors of more hard-hitting non-fiction as well.

While her main interests are in non-fiction, Claudia states that she is also looking for works of fiction in literary or commercial areas such as historical novels and crime/thrillers. However, this is not borne out in her current client list. At the time of writing, Claudia only has two fiction clients -- poet and short story writer Anthony Anaxagorou and children's author/illustrator Viviane Schwarz -- neither of which conform to her stated preferences in what she's looking for.

Claudia doesn't have much of an online profile outside of her official Greene & Heaton biography, but she does use Twitter. We recommend anyone interested in approaching her reads through Claudia's Twitter account to get a better sense of her personality.
