Welcome to the

Greenhouse exclusively represents and manages the careers of authors writing fiction for children, from picturebooks through middle grade novels to sophisticated teen fiction.

The name says it all. Greenhouse aims to nurture and grow the talent of exceptional writers.  With an emphasis on working creatively with clients, Greenhouse can help writers develop their voice and craft – and then be their advocate and long-term partner through the publishing process and beyond.

We believe young people deserve great fiction. Greenhouse seeks outstandingly talented authors who are ready to put down roots. If you have a passion for excellence and a great story to tell, please get in touch. My colleague Polly Nolan (our UK agent) and I look forward to reading your submission.

With its transatlantic approach, and considerable experience of both North American and UK markets, Greenhouse is in an unequalled position to find the very best home for your work– on whichever continent that may be.

The Greenhouse


Founded in January 2008, the Greenhouse is a full-service literary agency exclusively for authors of fiction for children and young adults. With deep roots in both the USA and UK, Greenhouse sells direct to American and British publishers. Foreign rights are handled by Rights People – a specialist children’s rights-selling business with a fast-growing reputation for selling literary properties around the world.

We also have excellent contacts within film and TV, and for sales of other subsidiary rights. Greenhouse and Rights People are both part of Working Partners, which has a highly successful international track record for creating children’s fiction.
