Profile Summary

Mandy is a former managing director of Watson, Little, and the agency’s current chairman. Prior to becoming an agent, she worked in film, media and PR. Mandy joined ‘Bolt & Watson’ in 1981 and went on to become a director of Watson, Little, in 1983 when the original agency was split into David Bolt Associates and Watson, Little Ltd. Alongside fellow agent Sheila Watson, Mandy created the agency that exists today.  

Mandy previously had a highly successful career as an agent for more than 30 years and represented a diverse range of fiction and non-fiction. However, her client list on the website now only lists two authors (Jean and Gareth Adamson of ‘Topsy and Tim’ fame), and it looks like former clients have been taken on by other agents.  

 

We have tried to contact Mandy without success and, based on the information on the website, it would seem that she is no longer an active agent. As Chairman, her role within the company is likely to be largely managerial. As a result, we would recommend budding authors seek representation from the other Watson, Little agents profiled on this site.
