Profile Summary

Paul is a senior agent who joined Bell Lomax in 2000. He is Managing Director at the firm and heads up a team of agents.  Paul specialises in representing children’s fiction and non-fiction and was formerly Head of Children’s Book Sales at Penguin Books. 

  • In narrative non-fiction, he is particularly interested in biography, music, autobiography and sport.  In fiction genres, he is a fan of crime.
  • Unfortunately, Bell Lomax do not publish the names of individual agent’s clients so we are unable to delve into his literary preference via the website.
  • However, he tweets regularly @PaulMore about books (and Arsenal FC) so twitter would be a good port of call if you want to find out more about him.
  • We can confirm that current children’s and young adult writers on Bell Lomax’s client roster include: Katy Birchall, author of debut teen fiction novel “The It Girl”; D D Everest middle grade book, ‘Archie Greene and the Magician’s Secret’; and Chris Haughton (creator of award winning picture book ‘A Bit Lost’)

We have been in touch with Paul to ask for further details about his literary likes and loves and plan to update this profile as soon as we have new information.  If any Agent Hunter subscribers can provide any pearls of wisdom relating to Paul or the agency, we would love to hear from you.
