I shall forever be grateful to Susan Yearwood for having taken a chance on me based on one short story I thrust in her hands at the London Book Fair. Being represented by her was a pleasure from the get go. Susan was my first reader for every draft of both my books. She’s an extraordinarily insightful editor – one whose feedback I value tremendously. When an agent ensures that every email from you gets a reply within three hours of your sending it, you know you’ve lucked out. Is she super selective? Yes. Will she sign more than ten people on at a given time? No. But if you do make the cut, you will be in very good, very patient hands.
