Rupert Heath (literary agent)
Rupert studied History of Art at the Courtauld Institute of Art, and worked in the art and fashion industries before joining the publishing world as a commissioning editor, most recently at Pan Macmillan. He founded the Rupert Heath Literary Agency in 2001, and is interested in writers of commercial fiction, including historical, crime, thrillers and sci-fi, plus cutting edge literary fiction. On the non-fiction side he is looking for works of history, biography and autobiography, and popular science, as well as books about nature, politics and current affairs, humour, popular culture, and the arts.
