Profile Summary

Laura is the Director and Founder of the Susijn agency.  The agency is relatively small and has around 55 clients.  It is interested in books that have international appeal and their main business comes from selling book and audio rights internationally.  

Regrettably, the agency do not publish an individual agent client list and there is no biographical information on anyone working at the Susijn agency.  We do not know if Laura is a lone operator or manages a team, and she has not yet replied to our requests for further details.  As a result, it is difficult for new authors to know what Laura/ the agency is looking for.  Nonetheless, our researchers have perused the general client list and scoured the internet to bring you the following nuggets of information:

•The agency’s primary interest is literary fiction and they publish authors from around the world, often in translation.  

•They have a small non-fiction list.  Memoir and autobiography are clearly strong genres (Literary biographer Peter Ackroyd and holocaust survivor Helen Lewis (A Time to Speak) are clients 

•Crime and literary thrillers from outside the UK are well represented - Jose Luis Correa and Simone Van Der Vlugt (Red Snow in December) are clients

•They represent a number of high profile international authors. For example, Wang Sok-Yong, one of Korea's most renowned authors.  

•They don’t represent self-help, science-fiction, fantasy, romance, children's, business, illustrated books, screenplays or theatre plays.

•Laura regularly attends the London Book fair

•a twitter account (@TheSusijnAgency) was launched in January 2015.  It is a good place to look for information about new publications as it is regularly updated
