PASSION AND ENTHUSIASM
The love of books is the driving force behind everything. From the moment, I read The Never-Ending Story and Brothers Lionheart, I have been hooked and the passion shaped my studies and my professional life. When I take on a book, I exhaust all possibilities to make it travel and get as many foreign rights sales as possible.
ACCURACY AND ATTENTION TO DETAIL
You need to be a bit of an octopus to be an agent. There are many details to keep track of. From sales pitches, to contract drawing, invoicing and reporting, I have a keen eye for detail and leave nothing unattended.
COMMUNICATION AND TRANSPARENCY
Personal relationships are at the core of the business. I take great pride in knowing a) the authors who poured their hearts and souls into the books, b) the agent who supported them along the way, c) the publishers who carefully launched the book in the home-market and d) the publishers and editors in the translation markets whose profiles and tastes I keep at the forefront of my mind before sending them material.
