Profile Summary

Ruth has been a literary agent for many years, including being the director of M.B.A. Literary Agents Limited from 1992. She now works with the Ki Agency on a part-time basis, focusing entirely on books and clients that deal with the subject of self-development. This interest is further explored in her work with Life Clubs at Work where Ruth works as a coach. Not only does she want to represent books in this area, but she lives the philosophies of self-development on a day-to-day basis.
Only submit to Ruth if you write in her area of interest. To further explore this, we recommend you visit the Life Clubs at Work website to better understand the philosophies that interest Ruth.
