Amanda Preston

I read English Literature and Latin at Manchester University. I have been an agent for over 20 years, first working at Sheil Land Associates, and then in 2005 I set up LBA with Luigi and I’m a director of the company. I run the Good Housekeeping Competition with GHK and Orion. In 2018, I won the RNA Literary Agent of the Year award.

I represent a wide range of authors, from award-winning debut novelists to popular fiction bestsellers and quality non-fiction. Whether commercial or literary, I like innovative and well-written storytelling, fantastic concepts and I want to be hooked from the start. Ultimately I’m looking for unforgettable books that demand to be talked about and shared, regardless of genre, and that I’m still thinking about days after finishing.

I’m not looking for fantasy, science fiction, children’s fiction or poetry.
