Hattie Grunewald graduated from University of East Anglia in 2013 with a BA in English and Creative Writing, and started work as an intern at Blake Friedmann the next week. She assists across the book department, handles short fiction and permissions on behalf of Blake Friedmann clients, and is now beginning to build her own list.
Specifically (but not exclusively), Hattie loves: love stories, especially slow-burners or ones disguised as something else; dysfunctional families (particularly step families, or dads who are neither deadbeats nor heroes); large sprawling casts of diverse and believable characters; authors from under-represented backgrounds; books that aren't afraid to call themselves feminist; books about mental health; blogs and tweets and writers that understand social media; pop culture; anything to do with food.
Hattie is also a poet. Her first pamphlet was published by Nasty Little Press in 2013, and one of her poems also appeared on tube trains across London as part of the Poems on the Underground scheme.
