Profile Summary

Romily is currently on maternity leave. Please check the Georgina Capel Associates Ltd website for the most up to date information on Romily and her work status.
With a BA in Spanish and Italian and an MA in English, Romily was a natural choice for Rights and Contract Manager at Georgina Capel Associates Ltd. After completing her degree, she worked for the Christopher Little Literary Agency for just under four years. Joining Capel & Land (now Georgina Capel Associates Ltd) in 2010, Romily worked exclusively with rights before her role was extended to literary agent in 2014. She is working to develop a select list of clients, focusing on crime and cookery books.
There is limited information in the public domain about this agent. However, her subjects at university give us a clue as to her interests as an agent. While she is looking for crime, you might consider sending her hard-boiled noir novels, as Romily studied Film Noir as part of her English MA. Other subjects of interest to her include American modernism, 1970s Hollywood films, history, and transatlantic literature.
Through her studies as well as her close relationship with television and film producers for her role as Rights Manager, Romily has cultivated a love of the screen. If your work is highly visual with great potential for screen adaptations, she might be the agent for you.
Romily's other interests include lacrosse, netball, skiing, running and travelling.
