Madeleine Milburn founded the Madeleine Milburn Literary, TV & Film Agency in March 2012, and is looking to represent authors of all types of popular and literary fiction including genres such as women’s, psychological suspense, crime and thrillers, comedy, general fiction, narrative non-fiction, children’s books, teen, young adult and cross-over.
My passion is finding outstanding voices in both adult and children’s fiction and non-fiction, and negotiating top deals. I have a very strong women’s fiction list and I am extremely excited about launching a crime, thriller and psychological suspense side to my client list. Authors such as Harlan Coben, S.J. Watson, Lee Child, John Connolly, Linwood Barclay, Tana French, amongst others in this area, hugely appeal to me but I am really looking for a strong voice, incredible characters and a page-turning plot.
I am always on the lookout for fantastic Young Adult novels too and the kind of books people like to discuss in bookclubs, the so called ‘Richard & Judy’ reads – these are novels that are accessible yet have really interesting themes. My main criteria is this though, no matter what genre, if I simply cannot book your book down, I will want to be your agent.
The Madeleine Milburn Agency has a long-term vision and an international plan for each author, negotiating significant deals in the UK, the US and foreign markets, liaising with publishers around the world. The Agency works in partnership with film agents, and directly, to option Film & TV rights to leading production companies and film studios in the UK and US.
