Profile Summary

Anne Marie Doulton has a background in general publishing and has worked as an editor, a reader and a literary scout.  She represents (in order of preference) Adult literary fiction; thrillers and murder mysteries; general fiction; Adult narrative non-fiction, including current affairs; history; biography; travel; YA fiction; and Children’s fiction 8 years and upwards.  

All general fiction and non-fiction is sent to Anne Marie’s email address, so she is likely to be the first person to see your submission. Please note, Science fiction, fantasy, horror and Young adult should be sent to her colleague, Jamie Cowen.  The agency doesn’t handle self-help, poetry and illustrated children’s books.

Anne Marie tweets irregularly @agentampersand, and on the basis of her past posts, we believe that crime writer Kate London (author of 'Post Mortem') is one of her clients.  Ampersand continues to build a strong thriller and murder mystery list, which features authors like Quentin Bates, Philip Hunter, Graham Minnet and Mark Roberts.  

Beyond the twitter account, there is very little other information about Anne Marie in the public domain.  Ampersand do not categorise their clients by individual agents which means we cannot analyse her list.  There is a distinct lack of available biographical information on Anne Marie so we do not know how long Anne Marie has been an agent or the names of the companies where she previously worked.

We would love to offer more data than we currently have. If any users of this site are able to provide us with any additional detail, we would be grateful if they could get in touch via email.  We have asked the agency to supply more data and will continue to do so. Watch this page for updates.
