We are delighted that author and BPA client Ruby Speechley has been signed by Hera for two psychological thrillers, the first of which will be published in July 2019. This success comes just less than a year after Ruby signed with agent Jo Bell from the Bell Lomax Moreton agency.
Ruby is a talented writer whose work has gained recognition from many prestigious writing competitions, such as the Lucy Cavendish College Fiction Prize and The Bath Novel Award. After Ruby completed a Faber Academy writing course, she approached Blue Pencil Agency on the recommendation of fellow author, Fiona Mitchell. Sara worked with Ruby on three of her novels and it is incredibly rewarding to see her secure this publishing deal.
