Sarah Davies Literary Agent was an agent with the Greenhouse Literary Agency. She is no longer taking submissions. Book Agent Sarah Davies has more than 25 years’ experience of children’s publishing, moving to the USA from London in 2007. She started her career at Collins (before it was HarperCollins), followed by a spell at Transworld/Random House. In 1994, she joined Macmillan Children’s Books in London as Fiction Editor, rising through the editorial ranks to Publishing Director (and member of the Management Board), a position she held until 2007 when she left to start Greenhouse.
Sarah Davies Literary Agent was based in Washington DC and heads the North American side of the Greenhouse. 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.
A member of AAR and SCBWI, Sarah Davies Literary Agent was an experienced speaker on issues connected with children’s books and creative writing and attends international bookfairs, American writers’ conferences, and industry events throughout the year. She loved talking to writers about their work and said, ‘Everything you need to know about Greenhouse is embodied in its name.’ Married to an American, she has twin sons who are more-or-less grown-up now, and who taught her much of what she knows about young people and reading.
