I became a literary agent in 2012. Previously I was a commissioning editor at Virago Press, an imprint of Little Brown Book Group. I co-founded the Diversity in Publishing Network, which received the New Venture Award from Women in Publishing in 2005. I have been a judge for the Commonwealth Short Story Prize, Bocas Fiction Prize, SI Leeds Prize, the London Short Story Prize  and the Northern Writers’ Awards.
