    [Agency] A.M. Heath & Co. Ltd.

    I noticed that this agency did not yet have a thread, so this is it. They are a first class agency, one of the oldest in London, highly recommended. Sarah was my agent from 1998 - 2004. She is wonderful, but has since switched to children's lit only. All of her clients have moved to other agents within the agency as a result. They are very personal and take great care of their clients, as you can see from this thread.

    When I was with them they had this wonderful quirky office in St Martin's Lane, lots of up-and-down slanting staircases over several floors. Then they moved to what I suppose are really nice modern offices; I never got to see the new place.

    This thread isn't getting a lot of traffic... but anyone planning to submit to this agency in the near future might like to check out the Twitter Q&A session they're doing on 15 May.

    Sarah Molloy used to be my agent. She is wonderful, but as we are around the same age... yes, that's retirement age in the UK. In Germany, I still have a few more years to go.

    Julia Churchill runs #askagent on twitter pretty often and she seems fantastic. Had trouble finding this thread though. Guess there is nothing bad to be found?

    Edit to add a question. I plan on querying her but was looking at the website form. They want a query, synopsis and there is a place to attach a doc for the "submission"... does this mean the full manuscript? http://www.amheath.com/submissions

    Julia Churchill seems great on twitter. Helps authors, very personable. Sent an attachment of my MS, just under 10,000 word of it, along with a synopsis, and cover letter/query.

    Julia is a delight. A good agent, too.
