Christabel McKinley – WOWCON Agent 1-2-1s (PB, MG, YA)
I've been working at David Higham Associates for 2 years now, although have a varied background working with children's books for some years previous. Regardless of the age range, I'm drawn to stories that feel original and personal, with characters you feel an instant connection with. I do have a soft spot for oddballs, unlikely partnerships and bands of misfits. Bold and original world-building always captures my interest, and although I do love a good bit of magic and the supernatural, I'm equally enchanted by the real world if it feels vivid and alive. Most of all, I want to connect through the world through a child's eyes, so writing that shows an innate understanding of the way children's minds and hearts work will always speak to me.
