Profile Summary

Aoife Rice is an associate agent to colleague Rosemary Scoular as well as having her own budding client list.  She is a relatively young agent, so we recommend you watch this space! Unfortunately, there is very little information about Aoife online and she has chosen not to divulge any biographical or submission information on her UA profile page. However, we have looked through her client list and believe that:

  • Food and cookery submissions would be a good fit for this agent.  She represents former Bake Off Contestant and debut author, Richard Burr and Robin Gill, head chef and director of Clapham restaurant, The Dairy
  • The natural world is another area of interest;  Paul Rose (author of BBC linked book Oceans) is a client
  • From the looks of her list, Aiofe is interested only in non-fiction
  • She tweets regularly about UA clients, books and television @msaoiferice and, given the scarcity of information elsewhere, twitter would be a good place to learn more about this agent

It is sadly difficult to offer further information due to Aoife's limited profile and small client list (some of her debut authors do not even have biographies on the UA site yet).  This is clearly off-putting for a new writer looking for an agent.  However, we are keen to update this profile page and have contacted Aoife to find out more.  Our researchers would also welcome information from anyone who can supply further details about Aoife’s client list.

As an agency, we value and welcome approaches from prospective authors. Instead of writing generally to the Book Department, however, we request that you take a look at our literary agents' pages on our website, and make a specific and informed approach to one agent only. Each agent may have specific requests in terms of how they wish to receive material, and those instructions will be on their individual pages. Generally, we ask you to email a full outline for non-fiction projects, or a synopsis of your novel and the first three chapters, together with covering note telling us about yourself and your writing career to date.
