Workshop Leader:

Alexandra Sheppard is an author based in North London. Her debut YA novel OH MY GODS was published by Scholastic UK in January 2019. When she isn’t writing teen fiction, Sheppard is a freelance social media strategist with experience on dozens of award-winning campaigns.

Lauren joined the Bell Lomax Moreton team in April 2014 as literary assistant and has been agenting full time since October 2015.  She graduated in 2009 with a degree in English Literature and Drama from the University of Manchester, and has a background in lifestyle journalism and PR.  She is currently building her own list and is looking for non-fiction projects ranging from people undertaking extraordinary challenges and having amazing adventures, to celebrities, aspiring foodies and lifestyle brands.  She has a passion for children’s literature and is also looking for YA and middle grade debuts with heart, humour and maybe a supernatural twist or two.
