About Me

I started my career in books in 2010, working simultaneously at Stanford's Map and Travel Book Shop and in the Rights Department at Bloomsbury Publishing. 

I then moved to Darley Anderson Agency, where I spent thirteen very happy years working with some of the UK's bestselling authors, building their careers in up to fifty languages. 

Whether it's commercial fiction, literary fiction or narrative non-fiction, I love the escapism I find when reading. I wholeheartedly believe this escapism is a feeling shared throughout the world by writers and readers alike, which is why I founded Darby Literary Rights Agency. With selling translation rights being our core focus, I build long-term careers in other languages and markets for our authors, seeing each deal as a stepping stone to the next. By taking immense care in matching each book and each author to the right publisher, I ensure the best and fairest deal for everyone.

I was shortlisted for the British Book Awards Rights Professional of the Year 2022.
