Salem, and new writers destined for future bestsellerdom: Carrie Duffy, Victoria Fox, Emma Garcia, Ella Kingsley, Martel Maxwell, Cally Taylor and Anna-Lou Weatherly. She has a long term vision and an international plan for each of her authors, negotiating high five and six figure deals both here in the UK and the US, liaising with publishers around the world and working with the Agency’s film agent in LA.

The Darley Anderson Children’s Book Agency Ltd was recently set up as a separate company with Deputy Managing Director Madeleine Buston responsible for developing the list.

Also, Sophie Gordon represents a growing number of talented children’s book illustrators.

US book sales are handled directly by the Darley Anderson Agency. But for sales of books or original scripts to US Film and TV companies the Agency works as it has for the last 18 years, in association with top Talent Agent Steve Fisher of the APA Agency in Los Angeles.

In foreign language book sales, the Darley Anderson Agency has great success in placing books with international publishers around the world.

Over the past twenty three years the Agency has built up an extensive worldwide network of foreign contacts, working with leading subagents and directly with foreign publishers.

Clare Wallace, ably assisted by Mary Darby, oversees all aspects of the foreign rights department; holding regular auctions, negotiating major deals and meeting over two hundred and fifty foreign editors at every major international book fair.

The focus at the Agency is on making our writers international bestsellers.

Four of our authors have been sold in 30 or more languages and ten of our authors have been sold in up to 25 languages. Every territory is just as important as another, from Germany to Brazil to Taiwan and Indonesia, we sell translation rights to over 55 countries. We aim to translate our titles into as many languages as possible, creating internationally bestselling authors.

Our Agency motto is : ‘Our writers mean business’. "
