Christabel McKinley

Fiction Development

After various roles in translation rights, literary scouting and ESL teaching in Korea, Christabel joined David Higham Associates in 2018. The agency was established in 1935 and, among its award-winning roster of children’s authors and illustrators, counts Cressida Cowell, Liz Pichon and Jacqueline Wilson. Christabel is currently building a list of children’s authors and illustrators across all age ranges. In picture books, she enjoys clever twists that make her laugh aloud, and acute observation of the world through a child’s eyes – particularly if it brings a warm glow or a tear to her eye.
