Looking for a publisher/agent
Hi, I am a London-based author of 13 books, mainly for middle-grade readers. I will be attending the London Book Fair and I am looking for a publisher or agent. Since March 2011, I have self-published 13 books, of which I wrote 11 during that time. The first book I finished was Kiwi in Cat City in 2002. My books are available in ebook and paperback format. I work as a freelance layout sub-editor on business magazines and editor/proofreader on books. I love reading, writing, films, art, animals and travelling. Titles published in 2011: Kaleidoscope (March) - 119 poems, divided by chapter themes; Travelling Light - a free book of 38 poems; Kiwi in Cat City - the first in a series about a magical cat and her human pals (April); Kiwi and the Missing Magic (June); Kiwi and the Living Nightmare (October). Titles published in 2012: Day of the Living Pizza - a comedy horror for ages 10 up (May); Life's Rhythms - a collection of 316 haiku (June); 3 Heads and a Tail - a romantic comedy with a dog as the hero, written for NaNoWriMo (June); Kiwi and the Serpent of the Isle (August); Day of the Pesky Shadow - book 2 in the Smarts & Dewdrop Mysteries series (October); Kiwi in the Realm of Ra (November); and Kiwi's Christmas Tail (December). The Kiwi books have illustrations by Nikki McBroom. Most of my fiction has been edited by Susan Bennett.

They follow the adventures of a magical cat called Kiwi and her two human friends, Amy and James. With a flick of her tail, Kiwi magically changes the two children into kittens and takes them to her other home, Cat City, and to other new worlds.
I am looking for an agent or publisher. I would also like to find bookshop owners who would be interested in stocking my books.
