Todd swaps Head of Zeus for Madeleine Milburn

Hannah Todd has left Head of Zeus to join Madeleine Milburn Literary, TV & Film Agency as a literary agent. 

She is now working in the adult fiction department alongside founder and director Madeleine Milburn, m.d. Giles Milburn, agent Hayley Steed and associate agent Olivia Maidment. Todd will continue to build the agency’s commercial fiction list, with a focus on developing digital strategy. 

Having started her career at Bookouture, Todd has worked at Canelo, Avon, One More Chapter and Head of Zeus, most recently as a commissioning editor within the Aria imprint. She has collaborated with authors across a wide range of commercial fiction genres such as Adrienne Chinn, Sandy Barker, Heather Burnside and R J Parker.  

Madeleine and Giles Milburn said: “We are so excited to have Hannah join the team. We are determined to embrace all the advantages of the digital market, and Hannah’s appointment will ensure that our authors will benefit from her editorial insight and technical know-how. Her taste for commercial fiction is also spot-on and her passion for the genre is infectious. Hannah heralds an exciting new chapter for the agency and we cannot wait for her to get started.”  

Todd said: “I am utterly thrilled to be fulfilling a long-term dream in stepping over to the other side of the table, and joining the MM Agency. It has been an utter joy to work in-house with so many fantastic authors and colleagues throughout my career, however the opportunity to join such a fantastic team doesn’t come by very often and I can’t wait to get stuck into submissions and build a list of commercial ‘must-read’ authors.”  

Todd started on 6th September, and is considering submissions in commercial fiction genres across the board including romantic comedies, cosy crime and police procedurals, accessible historical fiction and saga. To submit, address the material to Hannah Todd, and email
