Welcome to our website. The Richford Becklow Agency was founded in 2012 by Lisa Eveleigh, who is the primary agent, working with specialist sub-agents for translation, US and film rights. She has a degree in English Literature from the University of Durham and a Masters from the University of East Anglia..
After graduating, Lisa worked at the BBC, and her publishing career took off in 1986, when she joined A P Watt Ltd, the world's oldest literary agency. Authors she worked with include Michael Holroyd, Frederic Raphael, Jan Morris, Graham Swift, Carol Clewlow and Tony Parsons. She was the first agent to recognise the talent of authors Helen Dunmore, Philip Kerr and Joseph O'Connor.
Lisa took a sabbatical from publishing in 2007, relocating to Glasgow with her boyfriend who is a writer and broadcaster. On their return to London, refreshed by the experience of reading widely and at leisure, she set up Richford Becklow and is delighted to be representing some old friends, as well as the debut talents she is working with.
Lisa is a member of the Romantic Novelists' Association and she served as a committee member for the Association of Author's Agents between 2004 and 2006.
