Eve started EVE WHITE LITERARY AGENCY in 2003. Her company has grown to represent everything from prize-winning literary fiction to bestselling picture books worldwide whilst maintaining the caring, family feel of a boutique agency. Eve’s goal from the start was for massive success for each of a small stable of authors.
She is very happy to say that she has achieved that aim with Sunday Times and New York Times bestselling writers on her list and many book-to-film deals signed. Throughout it all she has continued to work with each individual closely – both editorially and to help to shape their career.
Eve says, ‘The best part of my job is calling a debut author to tell them they have a publisher. When that client goes on to sell millions of copies in the UK and signs deals in dozens of territories worldwide, it is thrilling for me as well as the author.’ One such debut was longlisted for The Man Booker Prize, another became the bestselling debut novel published in 2014 and three were selected for the Richard & Judy Book Club.
Eve was shortlisted for The British Book Awards, Literary Agent of the Year 2015, and has been shortlisted again this year.
