Children's Authors and Illustrators

United Agents represents a wealth of talent in writing and illustrating for children. From very first picture books right up to work for young adult readers and everything in between we are lucky to work with prize winners, bestsellers and some of the most innovative creators in the field.

Jodie Hodges represents only children’s authors and illustrators. Emily Talbot works in the office of Jodie Hodges and also has her own list of children’s authors and illustrators. Additionally, Robert Kirby, Jane Willis, Caradoc King, Laura MacDougall and Mille Hoskins have some children's authors on their lists. If you are submitting children’s book material and feel your work is better suited to one of these agents then do look at their individual pages for their submission guidelines.
