Beth is the owner of Ladderbird Literary Agency. She has a BA in Literature and a Masters in Business Administration and is always looking for new and exciting ways to bring more diversity into publishing and beyond.  Outside of agenting, Beth teaches writing in her local community with a focus on bringing reluctant writers and readers into the magical world of books. She relentlessly searches for more ways to encourage writers to create stories that matter! Outside of books, she loves the outdoors, all things water related, and has a strong attraction to abstract art.

Beth is currently only taking on referred clients.

  • She is not looking for stories of trauma, and cannot accept works that feature sexual violence, or violence to children or animals, or war whether real or imagined. This is not to say these stories are not important, but rather she must protect her own mental well-being. ​

  • In both fiction and non-fiction, she is not a good fit for books on the Judeo-Christian religions, military stories, or stories focused on police. 

  • Beth responds to every query. Her typical response time is 10 to 12 weeks, but can sometimes be longer. Feel free to reach out to her if you have not heard from her in MORE than 12 weeks.
