Agent: Rosemary Scoular
I am a founding partner at United Agents, and head of the Books Department here between 2014-21. My first job in publishing was as Rights Manager at Bloomsbury, and I moved on to work with Deborah Owen on her small but wonderful list before joining PFD to handle rights of all sorts across the agency. I have developed a list of writers and presenters focusing on non-fiction, from food writing to history, popular science and nature, travel and adventure, politics and investigative journalism, the arts and memoir of all kinds.
I’m always interested in new voices as well as established ones, particularly those with the urge to communicate original ideas and experience with passion and knowledge. I represent my clients in all aspects of their work, from writing and broadcasting to podcasts, live events and media activities, supporting them with commercial opportunities of all kinds.
