Meet the agent: A. M. Heath

I now have a literary agent! Absolutely thrilled to have signed with Oli Munson at A. M. Heath. And somewhat awed that the same agency looks after stars like Hilary Mantel, Marina Lewycka, crimewriter David Mark, fellow Jo Fletcher Books author Tom Fletcher and – going back a little further – George Orwell himself.

This is taken from their website:

“Founded in 1919, A.M.Heath is one of the UK’s leading literary agencies.  We represent established contemporary authors, rising stars and some of the iconic writers of the 20th Century.  Our focus is on working with authors to exploit the potential of their writing in as many arenas as possible.  Our agents work closely together to ensure that we cover all areas of the business and each author benefits from the shared expertise of our tight-knit and supportive team.

“Between us we represent a wide range of prize-winning and bestselling fiction and non-fiction;  journalists, historians, biographers, experts and novelists across all genres,  from crime to literary, historical to YA and children’s.

“We are also proud to represent several major literary estates, including the Orwell estate.”
