Profile Summary

Rosemary Scoular is a senior agent and partner at United Agents.  She tweets regularly @rscoular.  Unfortunately, aside from her twitter page, there is almost no information about Rosemary in the public domain which makes it difficult to draw conclusions about her thoughts on new submissions. However, our researchers have studied her list and can provide the following details about her existing clients.

  • She mainly represents non-fiction
  • Particular topics of interest are food and cookery, history, parenting, nature, health, and diet and exercise
  • Has a celebrity chef client list which includes Raymond Blanc, Nigel Slater and Marcus Wareing
  • History is another strong suit.  Dan Snow and Simon Schama are clients.
  • Interested in up and coming food writers.  Jack Monroe (author of the hit blog and cookbook ‘A girl called Jack’) is one of her success stories

Agent to a host of household names in journalism and broadcasting, including  presenters Mariella Fostrup and Anna Richardson, and documentary film maker Nick Danziger

Rosemary is an experienced agent who represents a lot of famous people.  As a result, we doubt that she is actively building her list.  However, the fact that she has launched a number of new faces in recent years, particularly in food and cookery (Jack Monroe, The Dumpling Sisters) suggests that she is always on the look-out for unique ideas which tie in with her interests.
