Profile Summary

Jane joined the Lutyens and Rubenstein agency in 2006, running their rights department before beginning to sign her own clients in 2010, with her excellent work being twice recognised by industry prizes. She won a Turin fellowship in 2011 and was included on the Bookseller's Rising Stars list of 2013. The very first writer she signed, Ned Beauman, went on to have his debut novel long-listed on the 2012 Man Booker prize.

The agency has no specific interests, with their clients covering a full gamut of genres and subject matter. Lutyens and Rubenstein represent authors of fiction and non-fiction, from cookery to history, literary commercial fiction to YA. Unfortunately, the agency does not list clients by individual agents, so it is difficult to pin down Jane's interests. 

Of the authors we know Jane has worked with, including Ned Beauman, Rebecca Harrington, Claire Fuller, and Sophia Tobin, it is clear that Jane loves commercial fiction, particularly historical fiction with a quirky premise.
