Profile Summary

Fiona Petherham works in conjunction with Michael Sissons, (see his separate AH profile here). Michael Sissons has had one of the most illustrious careers in the agenting world, and his client list is a roll-call of the great and the good of politics, defence, the arts, literature and more.

It's not clear from the PFD website if Fiona Petherham takes on clients in her own right -- we assume not -- and Michael Sissons himself is highly unlikely to take on new clients direct from the slushpile at this stage in his career. In short, if you want to make a submission to an agent at PFD, we'd suggest you consider some of the firm's other fine agents.
