I established the Agency in July of 2014, after working for many years in the independent publishing sector, where my responsibilities included negotiating rights and permissions to international publishers. I established successful personal working relationships with literary agents and publishers in Australia and throughout Europe, Asia, USA and UK, and attended the annual Frankfurt Book Fair (the world’s largest trade exhibition) for 20 years. I negotiated more than 120 international licensing agreements on behalf of writers and illustrators and a number of screen and stage adaptation rights agreements for original material first published in volume form. In early 2018, I joined with Natasha Solomun of The Rights Hive in Melbourne, in an agreement under which she represents authors and titles on the Agency list to international markets. The Agency is located in Perth, Western Australia.
