SFF writer Leigh Priest has joined the John Jarrold Literary Agency.

She is the author - under the name Leigh Kennedy - of the highly-regarded novels The Journal Of Nicholas The American, which was nominated for the Nebula, and Saint Hiroshima, as well as many short stories, some of which have been nominated for World Fantasy, Nebula and BSFA awards.

Her writing has been translated into German, Finnish, Spanish and Japanese, and in 1998 she received an Arts Council Grant.

'I think more people recommended Nicholas the American to me than any other book,' said John Jarrold. 'Leigh is a major talent, and I couldn't be happier. She and Chris Priest live in Hastings, as do I, so we can get together regularly. We're already discussing new projects.'
