David is a Yorkshireman who first developed a love of books as a young boy in York’s Central Library where books transported him from the narrow cobbled streets to every part of the globe.
After studying in the US and a first job working for Penguin Books he landed at MBA. David has built a terrific reputation for negotiating top dollar advances and guiding his clients to major success. He has represented multiple #1 and Top Ten Sunday Times bestsellers.
He works very closely with a variety of clients including journalists, novelists, sports figures, actors, doctors, TV personalities, business figures, and military historians. He brings a strong editorial and commercial approach to all proposals and manuscripts, believing that it takes more than a good idea to sell in the current market. He works hard to convert these ideas into something which will really connect with an editor and a wider readership.
