Tanera joined the Darley Anderson team in early 2017 and is building the women’s fiction list. She is a huge fan of commercial romances, and is open to all submissions within the genre: she has a particular passion for strong female leads and authors with a unique voice. She currently represents authors both in the UK and US, including: Beth O’Leary, Sandie Jones, Mandy Baggot, and Lauren North. Tanera studied at Exeter University where she gained a BA in English Literature before she went on to join the Lovereading team. Here, she spent much of her time doing what she loves most: reading books and discussing them with like-minded people. She then went on to work within the production team of a well-known publishing house, which gave her a good grounding in the world of publishing.
