Gregory & Company Authors’ Agents was originally formed as a partnership. Jane Gregory then became the sole owner, and since 1st January 2018 we have become part of David Higham Associates.
We see editing as part of the agency’s long-term commitment to an author and we pioneered the now popular trend of employing an in-house editor to shape and polish typescripts before sending them to publishers. If an editor has to choose between a new author, who has been edited by us, or one that requires work, the choice is obvious. We offer extensive editorial advice and guidance to those authors that we represent to ensure that a typescript is in its best possible form before being submitted to a publisher.
We have purposefully kept our list of authors small to ensure that we have time to devote to each author. We are particularly interested in books that we can sell to publishers abroad as we have been hugely successful selling our authors to publishers throughout the world as well as to film and television.
We are known as the foremost agents for crime and thrillers although we handle many types of fiction and our interests are wide-ranging. We do also on occasion handle general non-fiction. We do not represent science fiction, poetry, academic or children’s books, original plays or scripts for television or film (we only handle film and television rights in published books).
