Profile Summary

Robert founded his eponymous agency in 2000.  He handles non-fiction and is particularly interested in sport, current affairs, military history, history, biography, popular medicine, travel and adventure, business, management and technology. The agency’s main body of work seems to be within the genres of history, politics and business.

Clients include Michael Broers (3-volume biography of Napoleon), motivational speaker and entrepreneur Rachel Bridges (‘How to Make a Million before Lunch’ and ‘How to Start a Business without any Money’), Chris Green (Every Boy's Dream - England's Football Future on the Line) and politician Michael Meacher (The State we Need).  

Robert has a background in independent publishing and previously worked for the Bowerdean Press. Please note, the agency prefers clients to write a letter or email of enquiry before sending their manuscript in.  It is not clear whether Robert is a sole operator or manages a team of agents (we suspect the former). Both Robert and his agency are based in Kent, however, beyond the information on website his online profile is quite limited.   He has a twitter account but it is largely inactive and we have not been able to source any other social media references.

We have written to Robert to ask for further information about his literary likes and dislikes and will update this page in due course.  In the meantime, if any of our subscribers are able to add pertinent details to this profile, please do get in touch as we are always keen to add to our agent database.
