Profile Summary

PFD was once the largest literary agency in the UK and, as a result, it looks after the literary estates of a large number of now deceased authors. Camilla is in charge of managing those estates and we believe that she does not take on any new authors in her own right – or, at any rate, no living authors. While she does have a few living authors, such as Graham Masterton, it is not clear if she is actively looking for any.

Writers wanting to be represented by PFD should consider the firm’s other agents. For more details, click on the “Literary Agency” tab above and explore the other agents listed there.

How to make a submission:
It's not entirely clear from the PFD website if Camilla is actively taking on new clients. She's described as an agent, but we believe that her activity is exclusively on behalf of estates. So we suggest approaching Camilla only if you are on the point of expiring.
