Anouska KnightAnouska Knight, winner of Mills & Boon and ITV Lorraine’s search for the next big thing in contemporary women’s fiction, has joined the Madeleine Milburn Literary Agency.

In January 2013, Anouska happened to see ITV’s Lorraine Kelly announce Mills & Boon’s search for the next big thing in women’s fiction. She sent in her 1,000 words and beat over 2,000 entries. She won the competition live on national TV on Valentine’s Day.  Halrequin Mills & Boon published her debut novel, Since You’ve Been Gone, in July 2013 further to once-in-a-lifetime trip to lunch with bestselling author Jackie Collins in LA!

Milburn says “I am thrilled to welcome Anouska to the agency.  It’s also wonderful to have another author under the Harlequin umbrella – we now share Victoria Fox, Jemma Forte, Radhika Sanghani and Holly Martin.’
