    The Lisa Richards Agency

    Anyone had any dealings with Faith O'Grady, the lit agent at Lisa Richards Agency in Dublin?

    http://www.lisarichards.ie/site/

    I've only seen fairly scant mentions of her on the web, like here:
    http://emergingwriter.blogspot.com/2...n-ireland.html

    And here:
    http://www.independent.ie/entertainm...t-1210794.html

    But the website seems pretty professional and she was interviewed by the Irish Independent and she gives seminars at the Irish Writer's Centre in Dublin so I guess she's pretty legit.

    But who does she represent? Is she taking queries at the minute? Does anyone out there know?

    Thanks!

    http://www.lisarichards.ie/site/writers has both a client list and how to contact literary agent Faith O'Grady.

    Thanks! I saw the email for Faith on the website but it's just a link to a generic info@lisarichards.ie email address. I'm going to send them a query through to this anyway and mark it for the attention of Faith.

    But because she doesn't seem to be on Publishers Market Place or Agent Query and there's no real guidelines on the website re: submission I wondered if anyone knew if they prefer e-queries or by post, what to send etc etc...

    Thanks again

    Any new info on this agency? Like what Faith is interested in representing? The site is not very helpful for people trying to query; the "writers" tab just has info on the authors who have worked with the agency and a link to click to contact Faith. No info about if they're accepting submissions, what they're interested in, etc.

    They rep LOTS of celebs, who write both books (generally non-fiction, much of it about the entertainment industry) and plays. I've been perusing their fiction list, and it seems to be all Ireland-based.
