Megan is a Literary Agent and is building her own list. She is looking for writers in a variety of areas and from a variety of backgrounds. In Fiction, Megan is keen to see high-concept speculative fiction (particularly high-concept love stories) for both commercial and reading group/crossover readers. She is also looking for historical fiction and gothic horror, as well as regional family drama, contemporary women’s fiction, and darkly comic novels.
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 Karen McCombie – and an Abi Elphinstone style adventure for that age group too. Megan loves anything creepy and spooky for the MG audience too, and would love to find horror for YA readers.
Megan is also keen to see interesting memoir and good narrative non-fiction on film, music, true crime, popular culture and issues from a female perspective. Megan is also growing a list of children’s non-fiction authors and would love to see proposals for ages 7+.
