Brenda, to get to your question, I'm afraid I hadn't started researching UK agents. I met 2 at a conference. One offered the other asked for a full, (this is last week) and I thought while I'm waiting to hear back on the full I'd send out a couple more. These I chose from QT (a couple of Uk agents that accept email) and from my favourite UK authors who write in the same genre. So I didn't really get much further than that. And one of those QT agents received my query monday and offered yesterday!!
I know from querying a couple of years ago on another project there is a good compilation of UK agents. I'll try and dig it up.

Ok, just did a quick search and writers services i think is where I searched a couple of years back. And I was also going to use www.literaryagent.co.uk. YOu can sign up for free. I think it's a bit like QT for the UK.

Hope that helps!

Claire --Thanks so much! I appreciate you digging for me. Will give it a go. I've been targeting US agents only, but I like the idea that UK agents accept more pages. :)
