Marina de Pass
Marina is an associate agent at The Soho Agency. She loves upmarket commercial and book-club fiction in all its forms – from twisty, domestic psychological suspense to smart rom-coms and big, sweeping love stories – and is actively looking to take on clients in this area.
Books she has loved recently include The Hunting Party by Lucy Foley, Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty, In Five Years by Rebecca Serle, The Flatshare by Beth O'Leary and everything by Jojo Moyes.
Marina joined The Soho Agency in 2016, after working for several years in the editorial departments of Little, Brown and HarperCollins. She has a rare insight into the publishing industry – in addition to her agenting work, she is also a published author, and has studied creative writing at the Faber Academy.
Marina is a trained copyeditor and proofreader – and takes spelling and grammar far too seriously. She also oversees the agency’s social media, as well as working with authors on building their channels.
