The Blake Friedmann Literary Agency has a very active International Rights team, representing our authors across all languages, territories and formats, and establishing and developing their literary careers worldwide. We maintain strong relationships with our publishing colleagues abroad and work hard to bring in significant rights income for our clients. The agency attends the major international book fairs, and our authors travel widely for the publication and promotion of their international editions. Our authors have won numerous foreign literary prizes, including Le Prix Femina, Le Prix Coeur Noir, ALOA Prize Denmark, Le Grand Prix de Littérature Policière and Deutsche Krimi Preis.
Louise Brice (maternity leave March 2016 until early 2017) heads up the international rights team, working with Rights Managers Melis Dagoglu and James Pusey, as well as Books Department Assistant Emanuela Anechoum.
