Megan graduated from Goldsmiths with a BA in English and American Literature in 2013 and worked as an intern at Watson, Little and Caroline Sheldon Literary Agency before returning to the agency as the assistant in July 2014. She is now an Associate Agent and is building her own list.
Megan is looking for commercial fiction & reading group fiction with original voices and an interesting hook, YA with realistic themes and characters, memoir and good narrative non-fiction writing on film and popular culture. She’s especially keen on finding debut authors as well as growing a list of talented illustrators. Megan is also interested in discovering new, quirky and imaginative voices across all ages in Children’s Fiction.
‘I’d love to find a regional family drama with multiple voices, generations and realistic characters – think East is East meets Parenthood – and I’m keen for more stories about sisters or mothers and daughters. If you’re writing funny, female focused MG, I would love to read it. I like fantasy but more so when it’s a light touch – a familiar setting with a touch of something magical over a high fantasy world. Psychological thrillers are not for me but I’d love to see a female led police procedural or a Big Little Lies-esque mystery.’
