Our final guest at the Online Festival is Rosemary Canter, who will be available from 8pm AEST.
Rosemary CanterÂ is an agent for Peters Fraser & Dunlop, and specialises in representing writers for children and teenagers. An agent since 1989, she was previously a childrenâ€™s book publisher, which gives her valuable insight into what publishers want. She also represents UK illustrators and is proud to count the following amongst her clients: William Nicholson, Benjamin Zephaniah, Alan Snow, Ian Whybrow, Russell Ayto, Emma Thomson, Sue Limb and Giles Andreae.
Rosemary has extremely eclectic tastes, and is equally enthused by sparkly picture books, bouncy books for boys, enthralling fantasy and adventure, warmhearted chicklet-lit, and moving love stories â€“ anything with an arresting and original voice. The PFD agency represents a vast array of talent of all kinds and can be found at www.pfd.co.uk
Rosemary is a devoted Londoner, with a passion for the arts and everyday vitality of that amazing city. She practices yoga when in need of a pause (i.e. every day).
