The daughter of a librarian, I quickly weaned on a passion for books. My Eureka moment came when I realized that I could combine my love of books and entrepreneurial skills (I’ve got a master’s degree in economics). I knew instantly that this is something I want to do.

For many years I have worked as a Polish subagent for the biggest American and British publishing houses and literary agencies. I have negotiated the Polish deals for Dan Brown, Stephenie Meyer, John Green (and his “The Fault In Our Stars” – my beloved book) and Monster High brand (to name just a few of thousands of contracts).

“Impossible!” – there is no such word in my dictionary. I always focus on finding win-win solutions and creating a stimulating environment in which both sides (Polish publisher and foreign rights proprietor) thrive to do more business together.

My personal favorties include children’s and YA literature, popular fiction and reportage books. As an agent I accept for representation all types of books except for die-hard fantasy and sci-fi.

When I was taking first steps at a literary agency 10 years ago, I knew I would be lost forever. I’d loved books since childhood and it turned out that the publishing world had serious plans for my future. I’ve looked at the book business from many sides, from representing authors like Stephen King, Harlan Coben or John Grisham as a Polish subagent, to working at a publishing house, and also licensing works by Julian Tuwim, one of the greatest Polish poets.

I love multi-layered novels (preferably historical ones) and reportage but I don’t restrict myself to any specific genre as I value diversity. I also devour all kinds of Warsaw-related books.

Books have always been my greatest passion. Although my interests are broad, literature has been the centre towards which everything else gravitates. In my career, I have worked in marketing, PR, and sales for international brands. I was also an executive assistant in a leading assistance company with international capital. As an English teacher of many years, I have a love for the language and its culture. Since 2017, I have been running SlowReading.pl – a blog where I recommend worthwhile books and promote mindful reading.

Working in a literary agency allows me to combine all my qualifications and passions perfectly. I handle titles across a broad range of genres and assist in a variety of agency’s activities. The fact that I can introduce Polish readers to selected literature from different corners of the world gives me immense satisfaction. I am a fan of nature writing, children’s literature, as well as non-obvious plots and non-fiction books that shed new light on what makes us human.
