Profile Summary

Jonathan is an experienced rights salesman and – after more than 20 years at Random House and Cornerstone – came to PFD to head up the TV & film rights sales for the agency’s book list.

That task remains his primary role at PFD, but he is also seeking to build a list of authors as an agent in his own right. We don’t at this stage have any data on what Jonathan’s tastes and preferences are, but we have solicited further information and will of course publish it as soon as we have anything.

In the meantime, if there any Agent Hunter users able to supply us with additional material, we’d love it if you would get in touch.
