Sarah Davies Literary Agent is based in Washington DC and heads the North American side of the Greenhouse, so if you live in the States or Canada you should submit work to her. In her publisher incarnation, Literary Agent Sarah Davies worked with and published many high-profile writers on both sides of the Atlantic. As an agent she has shepherded many debut (and several previously published) authors to success. She has considerable experience in contract negotiation, marketing and rights, as well as a strong understanding of digital developments. Excellent publishing contacts in both the USA and Britain, and homes in both countries, have given her an unusually transatlantic view of the children’s books industry, enabling her to represent authors directly to both markets. She makes regular trips to New York and London, meeting publishers and keeping in touch with the book scene.
