A bit about me …
In 2015 I decided to start my own foreign rights 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 so many others – was determined to become an editor. As soon as I found out about rights though, I knew that this would be the perfect job for me. Meeting people around the world, learning about different cultures and languages and talking with editors about beautiful children’s books – absolutely amazing! And I was right!! I love my job and am very passionate about working in foreign rights and promoting children’s books all over the world. Today I have several years of experience and previously worked in Germany, the US and UK at a number of publishing houses 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. Let me help you to make your books travel the world.
