Nelle Andrew, formerly of PFD, has joined the Rachel Mills Literary agency.
Andrew will continue to work with her clients across fiction and non-fiction, including the Costa Prize-winner Sara Collins, Jing Jing Lee (currently longlisted for the Women’s Fiction Prize and Walter Scott prize,) two-time British Book Award nominee Bryony Gordon, bestsellers Elizabeth Day and Heidi Perks, and Pandora Sykes and Cariad Lloyd.
She has also managed the Lucy Cavendish Literary Prize since 2015.
Andrew said: “It has been an incredible 11 years at PFD, but I am ready for a change and incredibly excited to be joining RML. Having worked with Rachel and Alex before, they know my methods and taste inside out and I feel that the opportunities RML offer is perfect for the ambitions I have for my authors. I know we will go on to do incredible things together."
Rachel Mills added: “I am very happy that Nelle and her carefully curated list of authors are coming to join RML. This marks a big step in RML’s growth and direction. Nelle has long been one of the agents I most admire, her list is extremely diverse, and she supports her clients tirelessly.
"Nelle’s ethos, entrepreneurial spirit and modern cross-media approach to managing her clients’ careers is perfectly aligned with RML’s strategy.”
Andrew was shortlisted as a British Book Awards Literary Agent of the Year in 2018 and was a Bookseller Rising Star in 2016.
