The Team

Charlotte Seymour

Agent
UK & US

After graduating from Oxford with a degree in French & Italian, Charlotte worked as a literary scout at Eccles Fisher Associates. In 2015, she joined Andrew Nurnberg Associates, where she handles English-language rights for many of the agency’s international authors and is actively building a list of fiction and non-fiction.

In fiction, Charlotte is looking for literary and book club fiction as well as outstanding character- and voice-driven crime, thriller and suspense. She loves writing that crosses boundaries, whether geographic or linguistic or in bringing a twist to a genre.

In non-fiction, she is looking for accessible, engaging writing on a range of subjects including popular science, social and environmental issues, linguistics, social and cultural history, nature, food and cookery, and popular culture. She especially loves hybrid books, for example, when in a memoir, the personal is interwoven with a bigger story or subject.

Charlotte enjoys working editorially with her authors, bringing existing projects to fruition and helping come up with new ideas. As well as championing literature in translation, she is eager to see more submissions from new and original voices in English from around the world.

As of January 2019, Charlotte is Secretary of the Association of Authors’ Agents (AAA).
