Megan is an Associate Agent at Watson, Little and is building her own list. She is looking for writers in a variety of areas. In fiction, Megan is keen to see commercial fiction and reading group fiction with original voices and an interesting hook. At the moment, she’d love to find a regional family drama, a female led police procedural, a uniquely told love story or a brilliant ghost/witch story in the vein of Laura Purcell. In children’s and YA, Megan would love to see contemporary YA tackling realistic issues and big, epic love stories as well as funny, female focused MG – think Louise Rennison – and an Abi Elphinstone style adventure for that age group too. She’s also keen on finding new picture book authors writing funny, commercial texts tackling the big issues and is growing a list of talented illustrators for all ages. Non-fiction is another area of interest and Megan is keen to see interesting memoir and good narrative non-fiction on film, music, popular culture and issues from a female perspective.
