Claire Roberts has been a publishing professional for 24 years, with 19 years of experience in UK and foreign rights. She is now building a list of clients whose work she will agent in both the US as well as in the international markets. Her focus is on upmarket and literary fiction, upmarket crime fiction and narrative non-fiction. She is actively looking to represent authors whose work falls into these categories.

Until recently Claire headed up the Foreign Rights department of Trident Media Group, developing the strategies that put Trident at the forefront of international sales among literary agencies.
Before joining TMG Claire oversaw the foreign rights program for Doubleday and Broadway Books, both imprints of Random House US. Prior to that she managed foreign rights for William Morrow and Avon Books, and for the trade books division of Harcourt Brace, now a part of Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.

Some of the authors she has handled in the international markets are: Justin Cronin, Elizabeth George, Michael Ondaatje, Marilynne Robinson, Mark Sennen, Radhika Swarup, Sonali Deraniyagala, Paul Harding, Marlon James, and Bob Swarup.
