Diamond Kahn & Woods Literary Agency

Nikki Marmery

Agent: Ella Diamond Kahn

Nikki worked as a financial journalist for 15 years, specializing in credit derivatives and foreign exchange markets. The financial crisis, followed swiftly by the arrival of three small children, put an end to that, and she now lives in the countryside, where she writes historical fiction and watches Gardeners World unironically.

Her novel in progress, Isla Maria, which follows the voyage of Francis Drake’s Golden Hind from the perspective of the only woman on board, was shortlisted for the Myriad Editions First Drafts Competition 2017.

She has a degree in history from the University of Nottingham and studied creative writing at the Faber Academy. Her interests are prehistory, feminism and feminist prehistory.
