My Manuscript Wish List®

At Global Lion we represent a multitude of genres. I love having a varied list that doesn’t sit in just a few categories. Currently I am leaning towards non-fiction and fantasy of all kinds at the moment. For non-fiction specifically, you must have a well-developed platform.

Aside from the below checked boxes (check the genre section!) I love hearing from voices that are typically unheard, and will always be open to commercial fiction and non-fiction, self-help, business, technology, fantasy, science fiction, intriguing studies of interesting subjects, art, and “making of” books on the film and television industry. Having represented Sir Ken Robinson for many years, we are also deeply vested in the subject of education. I have a special place in my heart for sci-fi and fantasy, but it must have a strong sense of style, prose, and voice. I also would enjoy representing YA horror or adult horror books, or adult mystery.

At the end of the day I want my curiosity sated and feel that I was thoroughly engaged, no matter what kind of book you’ve written.

Fun facts about me:

I have two cats – Bob and Betty!
