About Me

Team work makes the dream work - and that's what publishing is about.

Creatives make us spread their work.

And our enthusiasm about it! 

 

Every agent has a story (let's hope so!): Acquiring and selling rights for German publishers since 2012, I love/work to find new ways to spread content. About 15 years ago, I studied Book Science and Philosophy in Mainz and finished with in an M.A. in Publishing at Oxford Brookes University. Working for leading or independent publishing houses made me experience the drive and demand, also the dedication we share for young readers. We love what we do. People over books.

My focus is on making reading fun! Let's find ways to make Kids, YA or New Readers

fall in love with books and stay with us. Authors and illustrators are the reason

why stories catch (new) readers - we can find ways to not only promote

reading but also to make our highly appreciated 

creatives and their stories grow! 

We just get started.
