How I Found the Agency

I’d been working on my book for a good number of years and, after the Sunday Telegraph printed a story about my research, and after two television production companies got in touch, I decided to approach publishers.

The responses I received were either negative or tentative and it wasn’t long before I realised that my best course of action was to find an agent.

Andrew Lownie responded almost immediately and by the time we’d spoken the following day I was utterly convinced that he was the man for me. Andrew has an invaluable wealth of experience and expertise and has always shown great faith in my book. He’s truly one of the best in the business.
