Michael graduated with a First in English Language & Literature from the University of Leeds, including a year at the Universidad de Oviedo. He joined Andrew Nurnberg Associates in 2016 as an intern, before working as Andrew’s assistant and then assistant agent.
In addition to handling Film & TV rights for the agency’s authors, Michael continues to support Andrew in the representation of authors, clients and estates, and is always keen to hear from potential new authors for his own list.
He is primarily looking for non-fiction across a broad range including social, cultural or military history, sport, music, technology and the natural world. In fiction, he would like to see upmarket crime and thrillers, and speculative or literary fiction that brings something new to the genre, be it through voice, character or setting. In all of the above he is particularly keen to hear from underrepresented voices.
