The Authors XI
CHARLIE CAMPBELL represents literary and commercial fiction and non-fiction and a select number of children’s authors. Before agenting, he spent three years at Literary Review, where he became Deputy Editor. He joined Ed Victor Ltd in 2005, where he handled film, TV and serial rights for the agency, before leaving after ten years to set up Kingsford Campbell. His clients include Edward Brooke-Hitching, Jen Campbell, Rebecca Front, Julian Gough, Will Hill, Simon Jones, Bella Mackie and Anthony McGowan.
He is the author of two books – Scapegoat: A History of Blaming Other People (Duckworth) and Herding Cats: The Art of Amateur Cricket Captaincy (Wisden). In 2012, he revived the Authors XI, a cricket team that used to star PG Wodehouse and Arthur Conan Doyle, which now plays at literary festivals around the world.
He is primarily looking for literary novels, crime, thrillers and historical fiction. In non-fiction, his interests include sport, popular science, history, humour and business.
