A bit about me …
I decided to start my own agency to be able to represent the lists and titles I fully support and I am passionate about. After my MA in literature I – as everyone else – wanted to become an editor, but as soon as I found out about rights I knew that this would be the right job for me. Meeting people around the world and talking with them about beautiful children’s books is the best job I can imagine. Today I have several years of experience and previously worked in Germany, New York and London at a number of publishing houses like Loewe Verlag, Quarto and Templar Books/Bonnier which has been an incredible time and learning curve for me. Working with creative people makes this job exciting and I have been very fortunate to be able to share my passion with some astonishing and inspiring personalities. During those years I build up strong relationships with publishers all over the world and got a thorough understanding of the world’s children’s book market. My focus lies on English language, Germany, Scandinavia, Dutch language and Eastern Europe and I am constantly trying to grow my customer base and knowledge in other territories as well.
