Clare Wallace joined the Darley Anderson Agency in January 2011. Clare is actively scouting for new talent and, as the Head of Rights, she also negotiates deals for translation rights all around the world for all the Agency’s authors.
We receive over 300 submissions a week, and almost all of our authors have been discovered in the slush pile. I would really like to find some more contemporary commercial women’s fiction and I’m also looking for accessible literary general fiction, alongside looking for new children's authors. Whether it’s a picture book text, middle grade, YA or for adults, the voice and characters have to sparkle and the story has to captivate. And I do love an unusual concept.
