I am the Chairman of Curtis Brown. I joined the agency in 1994 from HarperCollins where I was Managing Director of Adult Trade Publishing.
I am fortunate to represent a number of best-selling fiction authors who feature in the Guardian Top 100 annual list and I also have a wide range of non-fiction clients and well known autobiographers, from politicians to celebrities.
I was President of AAA (Association of Authors' Agents) from 1999 to 2002 and was pleased to be voted Agent of the Year from a shortlist of six literary agents at the British Book Industry Awards in 2009.
My assistant is Lucia Rae.
