The Team

Charlotte Seymour

Senior Agent
UK & US

Please note that Charlotte is not accepting submissions at the moment

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 represents fiction and non-fiction, alongside handling English-language rights for a number of the agency’s international authors.

In fiction, Charlotte looks for book club and literary 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 interested in accessible, engaging writing on a range of subjects including popular science, social and cultural history, reportage, nature, food and cookery. 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.

Charlotte was Secretary of the Association of Authors’ Agents 2019-2021 and a Bookseller Rising Star 2021.
