Profile Summary

Cara Jones is a relatively new agent.  She began her career at Random House and, in 2006, joined RCW as an assistant to literary super-agent Gill Coleridge.  Her RCW profile states that she ‘still works closely with Gill and a number of her clients’ so she will have experience of handling a host of prestigious literary names (see our profile page on Gill Coleridge for more information). Cara is also building her own list and handles both fiction and non fiction. She is particularly keen to sign Crime and thriller writers. 

In terms of her existing client list, Cara represents critically acclaimed author Paul Watkins (‘Night Over Day Over Night’ and ‘Stand Before Your God’); Karin Altenberg, whose bestselling novel, ‘Island of Wings’ was shortlisted for the Saltire First Book Award and the Scottish Book of the Year Award; and bestselling crime writer Frances Fyfield (‘A Clear Conscience’, ‘A Question of Guilt’).

She keeps a low online profile and our research has not turned up any detailed information about her literary leanings.  There is limited biographical information in the public domain and we have not even been able to source a photograph of this agent. Our researchers have been in contact with Cara to ask for further details and we plan to bring you new data in due course. However, if you have worked with Cara and are able to help fill in any of the blanks, please do get in touch.
