About Louise

Born in South Africa, I now live in New York City and travel to Cape Town every year for two months, where I spend time working with South African writers, promoting literacy, meeting with international publishers and distributing books to disadvantaged communities. Before agenting, I worked in marketing and advertising for both the consumer markets and publishing.

Prior to joining The Bent Agency, I worked as a literary agent at the L. Perkins Agency. I represent numerous New York Times and USA Today best-selling authors and I am a huge advocate of utilizing secondary rights—In addition to print/traditional rights, I have also sold film/TV, audio, gaming, distribution and foreign rights for my clients. I believe in staying ahead of the pack by embracing change, not just adapting to it.

I’m looking for writers with a unique voice and an unforgettable and interesting story. I love experimental/unique structure, language, verse and formats.

For YA and MG, I’d love modern retellings, STEM stories, heartfelt and/or funny contemporary novels and all types of middle grade fantasy. Always looking for books with well developed secondary characters and multiplatform possibilities.

For nonfiction I’m particularly interested in pop science, self-help, cookbooks, true crime, humor,  pop culture and sports. In romance, I love female heroines with unusual jobs or jobs usually reserved for the hero. I’d love it to be a layered, light and fun contemporary novel or a fresh and modern historical that reads like a romantic comedy.  I  love the fish-out-of-water trope, stories about nannies, body positivity, strong writing and diverse voices.
