Profile Summary

There is limited information publically available on Darryl. He is an Associate Agent at Artellus, handling international rights and theatrical works as well as building a prose list. He is interested in writers of fiction (mostly literary fiction) and non-fiction, with a specific focus on social commentary and history. 

Artellus does not publish individual agents' client lists, so it is difficult to determine just how many authors Darryl takes care of on his own. It is also worth noting that Darryl published a book of his own in 2008, represented by the agency. 

If you have any pertinent insights into Darryl's preferences, please let Agent Hunter know. We will update this profile as soon as we uncover any more helpful details.
