Thank you, digger. For some reason, British agencies can be very secretive about exactly what genres they're interested in.

Several comments below about genres - their website (not sure if this is a recent change) states: "We are actively looking for new writers across the board, both general and genre fiction and non-fiction"

I interpret that to mean they are open to ANY genre. The only specific exclusions listed are "books for children, poetry, plays, screenplays and short stories".

I really do prefer agents who take the time to send a rejection letter. I know many agents are just too busy to do this, however, it is nice to at least know it is a NO.

Also one of the better form rejection letters. Put my first name in and the stock standard rejection is:

Many thanks for your kind words and for sending us this proposal, which I read with interest. I considered it carefully but I’m afraid on balance it just doesn’t quite grab my imagination in the way that it must for me to offer to represent you. So I must follow my instinct and pass on this occasion. I’m sorry to be so disappointing, but thanks for thinking of us. Of course this is a totally subjective judgement, so do try other agents and I wish you every success.

Kind regards

Robin

Where on their website does it say they don't do Fantasy or Romance?

They do not consider Fantasy or Romance. I asked. Anyway, they seem a very good agency. Good luck to all.

PATRICK - Why isn't there any genres submitted for this agency. They seem to represent adult and YA fiction (no poetry, children's books)?

He got back to me in just a few days with a very kind rejection email.
