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 in Biography from the University of East Anglia..
Lisa first worked at the BBC, and her publishing career took off in 1986, when she joined A P Watt Ltd, the world's first literary agency. Authors she worked with include Sir Michael Holroyd, Frederic Raphael Jan Morris, Graham Swift, Sir Quentin Blake and Tony Parsons.
She was the first agent to recognise the novel-writing talents of the late - and very much missed - Helen Dunmore and Philip Kerr..
Lisa also first spotted bestselling literary novelist Joseph O'Connor in the
A P Watt inbox and when consulting for Pollinger Ltd., she edited the first novel by Kimberly Chambers, who has since had several No 1 bestsellers.
Lisa is a member of the Romantic Novelists' Association and The Biographer's Club and she served as a committee member for the Association of Author's Agents between 2004 and 2006.
