Literary agent Jo Bell began agenting in 2016 when she joined her family-run agency Bell Lomas and Moreton. With over eighteen years of experience working in the industry, Jo brings with her a wealth of knowledge from working in roles such as a Children's Sales Director with HarperCollins and UK Sales Director at Parragon Books. Jo is actively building her list and represents adult fiction. She is interested in seeing crime, thrillers & suspense, contemporary romance, women's fiction including commercial, literary & historical, and humour.

In an interview from 2017 with Romantic Novelist Association, Jo revealed what she looks for in a submission:
'When I'm reading a manuscript, it's the whole package that I'm interested in. Firstly, I'm keen to grasp an understanding of who the author is, then I've got to be instantly intrigued by the idea or story, and finally, I've got to enjoy the writing, not just from the beginning of the story but right through until the final word'.
