The Caroline Sheldon Literary Agency is one of the UK’s leading literary agencies representing a bestselling roster of authors and illustrators. Our particular areas of interest are fiction and all types of children's books.
Caroline Sheldon founded the agency thirty years ago after working as a publisher of women’s fiction and children’s books.
Millie van Grutten works as the marketing and rights executive.
The agency has close contacts with all major publishing houses and is also very active in the selling of film, television, American, translation and merchandising rights.
We believe we have a reputation for sending only high quality manuscripts and illustrations, and that editors and art directors place work from us to the top of their pile. We are always open to accepting new authors and illustrators, but we are extremely selective. We only take on those whose work we love.
The Caroline Sheldon Literary Agency is a member of the Association of Authors’ Agents. See our Code of Practice here.
