Profile Summary

Vanessa Holt set up her own agency in 1989 after learning the tricks of the trade at the John Farquharson agency (now part of Curtis Brown).  

Past clients include the Romantic novelist, Lucilla Andrews; the crime writer, Peter Lovesey; and a number of historical fiction authors, including Julie Ellis and Deryn Lake.  In ‘The Novelist’s Toolkit’ (published in 2011), she was described as being interested in ‘books with potential radio and TV tie-ins’.  

Unfortunately, the Vanessa Holt agency doesn’t have a website, and online searches for the Managing Director yield little current information. As an agent with over 25 years’ experience in the business, our researchers think it is unlikely that Vanessa Holt is building her client list.  As a result, we advise new writers to seek representation elsewhere.  

However, if any subscribers are in touch with Vanessa and can provide more details about her agency we would be delighted to hear from you.  We aim to bring you the most up to date information and are always willing to update our profiles.
