Arabella Stein – Managing Agent, Bright International

Since her first job working as a children’s bookseller, Arabella spent many years at Pan Macmillan as Editorial Director, 4th Estate and Bloomsbury, where she was Paperback Publishing Director before becoming a co-agent at Abner Stein for twelve years. At Abner Stein she represented a wide range of best-selling and prize-winning authors on behalf of American Publishers and Literary Agents in the UK and Commonwealth.

A fast thinker and reactor, Arabella is able to inspire and encourage artists and publishers — setting up long lasting collaborations between publisher and artists.

Representing illustrators and authors both established and at the beginning of their careers, Arabella is particularly drawn to artwork with an immediate and unforgettable impact; individual, yet relatable characters and a narrative that shows and never tells.
