What’s important/interesting for potential clients to know about you and what you’re looking for?
Gorgeous writing combined with propulsive storytelling. My guiding principle is a book that can “stimulate the mind and satisfy the heart” and this illuminates every read, regardless of categorization.
I’m interested in narrative nonfiction that just might involve spies & espionage, or that spotlights a slice of social history I’ve not encountered yet. I’m increasingly curious about smart non-fiction that makes me question my thinking and teaches me something new about human behavior and the world we live in.
I have a dark, soft spot in my heart for literary crime and thrillers.
I’m looking for new American and International voices, and for literary fiction that’s modern and swoon-worthy on a line level but with an equally enveloping plot. I love dysfunctional families (aren’t they all?). I am inevitably passionate about Irish Writing, of course, and always keen to read lots more. I love a singular, spectacularly written literary memoir just as much as I love a transporting piece of historical fiction.
