Profile Summary

Fiona established her agency, Limelight Celebrity Management, in 1989. Limelight specialises in clients who make careers as both writers and personalities, such as Mary Berry. Many of the agency's clients are chefs, though Fiona does represent fiction and other non-fiction works as well. Unlike many of the other agencies in the UK, Limelight places emphasis on their ability to support brands by leveraging their clientele for endorsement, advertising, hosting opportunities, live events, and personal appearances.

With such commercial concerns, it is obvious that Fiona is interested in manuscripts and clients who have a lot of commercial appeal. With the margins in publishing being forever squeezed, she is looking for books with global, mass market potential. In fiction, this includes thrillers, crime, historical, suspense, mystery and women's commercial fiction. For non-fiction, she is particularly on the lookout for illustrated books, such as lifestyle, cookery, gardening, biography, crafting, health, history, sport, business, and travel.

When submitting to Limelight Celebrity Management, ensure that you give thought to where you want your career to go and why there is a sizeable market for your work. Fiona is not interested in a one-book author unwilling to participate in marketing their work. It's crucial that authors, as much as their publishers, invest time and energy into getting their work out there.

While Fiona prides herself on representing established celebrities and the up-and-coming newbies, she says that there is no place for egos amongst her clients. You might be exceptionally talented, but a professional attitude must always come first.
