Beverley represents a diverse list of internationally published and acclaimed authors in fields ranging from literary and commercial fiction to history, narrative nonfiction, anthropology, biography, to carefully selected true crime and self-help.
She doesn’t handle poetry, very few children’s titles, and almost no horror, romance, or illustrated books.
