Julia Silk


Currently focused on high quality crime, thriller, reading group fiction and narrative non-fiction

Julia was an editor for 15 years, most recently with Orion, before becoming an agent working in association with MBA to build her client list. She loves to read stories that keep her turning the page, and welcomes submissions of accessible literary and commercial fiction, crime and thriller from new and established writers. She is also interested in receiving proposals for platform-driven non-fiction in the areas of parenting and lifestyle, fashion, style and beauty, as well as narrative non-fiction and memoir. Julia does not represent clients in the areas of SF, YA or children’s.
