Mark Ellen's autobiography How Rockstars Changed My Life remembers his time with some of the most influential music companies. From NME and Smash Hits, to Live Aid, Mojo and The Word, Ellen's momentous life will be serialised in The Times this spring. His is not the only book from the world of rock and roll we're celebrating this year.
Paul Trynka's sharp and elegant Starman celebrates Bowie's brilliance with a timely reminder of how great music and rock legends are made. (Brian Jones and the Making of the Rolling Stones also publishes this autumn.) Meanwhile, Charles R. Cross' definitive biography of the Nirvana front man Kurt Cobain, Heavier Than Heaven, is being reissued in time for the twentieth anniversary of Cobain's suicide. From abject poverty to wealth and fame, the book traces his journey from humble origins in Washington to becoming lead singer of the most influential band of the decade. A classic of rock mythology.
In contrast, Sarah Oliver looks inside the lives of this generation's music celebrities. Around the World with Justin Bieber follows on from her best-selling books on One Direction, The Wanted, Miley Cyrus and Rihanna.
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.
