Hello, I’m Sinead – a Manchester-based literary agent. Having spent the last five years working at the heart of the London publishing industry, I’ve moved here to discover exciting authors and help launch the careers of writers in the North.

In my time as a literary scout I worked with some of the best publishing houses in the world. From countless conversations with editors, in the UK and internationally, I know the market and what editors are looking for. I have an eye for talent and the contacts to put your novel in the hands of the right people.

I’m looking for writers of crime, thrillers, psychological suspense, high-concept novels, romance, women’s fiction, historical fiction and reading group fiction. Those are the books I love to read so they’re the ones I’m here to publish.
