Profile Summary

Zoe was promoted to full agent at United Agents in 2012.  She has a background in audio rights and sales and is the associate agent for her colleague, Sarah Ballard.  Unlike many of her UA colleagues, Zoe is a young agent who is actively building both her fiction and non-fiction list. Her current client base is small so she would be an excellent choice of agent for a new writer. 

  •  Areas of interest include short stories, literary fiction, psychology (in particular psychoanalysis), health, lifestyle and cookery.
  • Many of her clients are first time novelists or writers working on their debut (for example Grant Gilespie, Amy Lilwall, Ratty St John)
  • She is a prolific tweeter @zoe_ross12   Would be clients could gain a good insight into her thoughts on life and literature by perusing her twitter feed
  • In the field of non-fiction, she is interested in people who are doing new things.  For example, she represents up and coming London restaurant, ‘The Palomar’, which is influenced by the food of modern Jerusalem.   

We have written to Zoe to ask for more information about her literary tastes and preferences and will update this information when she responds.  In the meantime, if anyone reading this page is able to offer further details on this agent, we would be happy to hear from you.
