It's not a secret that books saved my life. Books are the only reason I'm here today. Before I discovered literature I had no direction or purpose in life. Had it not been for Coralie Bickford-Smith's book designs I would never have discovered the meaning of my life. My passion for literature and the power of story-telling informs everything I do in life, including my discovery of the beautiful power of social media and its potential to inspire lives and businesses.
As a literary agent I prioritise only representing minority writers, specifically women and writers of colour. Supporting and encouraging writers from marginalised communities is very important to me, and I believe it to be an honour to help in any possible way I can to assist in diversifying the literary world.
I have earned a BA in English Literature and Classics from the University of Birmingham and MSc in Literature and Modernity from Edinburgh University.
I worked as a bookseller and Philosophy Book Buyer for five years and I currently run a Youtube channel where I talk all things books and produce weekly bite-size video essays on literary theories and philosophical concepts. I am also the producer of the essay podcast series 100% Recycled Words.
