Thomas Cromwell has been long reviled as a Machiavellian schemer who stopped at nothing in his quest for power, but Tracy Borman's biography (29th January 2015, Hodder, Paperback) reveals a different side to the man who shaped Tudor England in such a profound way and inspired Hilary Mantel's Wolf Hall. Thomas Cromwell: The Untold Story of Henry VIII's Most Faithful Servant provides more depth to the character, revealing his role as a loving father, a witty and generous host and a loyal and devoted servant. A book that 'adds to the debate surrounding this ultimately elusive character' (Financial Times) it also exposes the court of Henry VIII 'in all its brutal, glittering splendour' (Kate Williams, Independent).
Our literary agents are happy to consider submissions from new authors, but please be aware that we are a small literary agency with a busy client list and we take on only a handful of new clients each year from the thousands of approaches made to us, many of which are from established writers and artists. If you are a new author, please read the submission guidelines before doing anything else.
