Veronique Baxter

I joined David Higham in 1999 after studying Law at Bristol University and was made a director of the company in 2007. I’m extremely proud of the wide range of authors I represent across adult fiction, children’s books and non-fiction, including many award-winners.

I am drawn to writing that is both distinctive and fluid in both fiction and non-fiction. In fiction I am currently looking for: literary fiction, fiction with a speculative edge,  historical fiction that surprises and upmarket crime and thrillers. In non-fiction, I’m particularly drawn to feminism, history, current affairs, memoir and narrative non-fiction.

In children’s books, I am looking for standout middle-grade and YA with heart or adventure, or preferably both!

If you would like to submit your work to me, please email: You should include a covering letter, a synopsis and the first three chapters of your book.

Please do not send children’s/YA submissions to my direct email address or manuscripts inbox. Children’s submissions should be sent to following the guidelines. Submissions sent to the incorrect inbox will be deleted without being read.

I am assisted by Sara Langham and Kara Abraham.
