Founded in 1997, Coombs Moylett Maclean is a leading international literary agency based in the UK. We represent a wide range of best-selling and award-winning authors and writers. We pride ourselves on discovering and nurturing talented newcomers and taking established writers to a new level of recognition.  

We carefully select our writers, with a focus on outstanding writing and original storytelling. We are interested in commercial and literary fiction; crime and thrillers, women’s, children and young adult fiction. And in non-fiction, we are interested in politics, history, current affairs, biography and self-help. Please see our submission guidelines for further details.

We work in association with a number of international agencies and scouts, and handle translation, US, film and TV sales for all our clients.
